Indirect negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis for a truce in Gaza resumed on Wednesday, a Palestinian official said, as the clock ticked toward the midnight expiration of a three-day halt to hostilities.

The talks, held at the General Intelligence headquarters in Cairo, were expected to last all day as Egyptian mediators race to bridge the gaps between the two sides.

The negotiations "are in a very sensitive stage and we hope to reach an agreement" before midnight, said Palestinian delegation head Azzam al-Ahmed.
