More than 110 Palestinians have been killed as Israeli troops used live fire to prevent a breach of the border fence. Late Tuesday a spokesman for Jihad said a ceasefire agreement had been reached to restore calm, though the Israeli army declined to comment on the claim.

Hamas is a political organization with an armed division that governs the Gaza territories.

The flare-up is the biggest since Israel and Hamas, the militant Islamist faction that rules Gaza, fought a 50-day war in 2014.

The Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad announced Wednesday morning they reached a ceasefire agreement with Israel to return to Operation Protective Edge in 2014 outline.

"It all depends on Hamas", Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said in a separate interview with the radio.

On Sunday, an Israeli tank fired on a Islamic Jihad observation post and killed three people, according to Al Jazeera.
