Israeli security cabinet to meet on Tuesday on truce proposal

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will convene his decision-making security cabinet on Tuesday to discuss an Egyptian-proposed ceasefire in the Gaza conflict, an Israeli official said.

The official seemed to put a positive face on the proposed truce, saying that Israel's week-old offensive in the Gaza Strip had weakened the Islamist Hamas group militarily.
