The Palestinian leadership along with Hamas and Islamic Jihad are willing to observe a 24-hour cease-fire in the war-torn Gaza Strip, as Israeli deadly bombardment continues nonstop.

"After consultations between the Palestinian leadership and the leadership of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, we declare our readiness for a humanitarian truce of 24 hours," said Yasser Abed Rabbo, Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization.

Since July 8, Israeli warplanes have been pounding numerous sites in the Gaza Strip, demolishing houses and burying families in the rubble.
Israeli tanks also began a ground offensive against the impoverished Palestinian land on July 17.

Palestinian medics say more than 1,050 Palestinians have been killed so far in the Israeli attacks and over 6,200 others injured.

Israel says 43 Israeli soldiers have been killed in the war, but Hamas sources say the number is about 100.
