BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli Cabinet reportedly decided, on Tuesday afternoon, to resume the offensive on the besieged Gaza Strip, following a nearly seven-hour meeting.

Hebrew-language news sites reported that following a meeting that lasted for nearly seven hours, the Israeli Cabinet decided to continue airstrikes targeting the Gaza Strip "as necessary."

According to a statement released by the Cabinet and published on Israel National News "The Political-Security Cabinet discusses events in the south. The cabinet heard reports from the IDF and security sources about the attacks and the widespread actions against the terrorist elements in Gaza, and instructed the IDF to continue its operations as necessary."

UN and Egyptian officials will reportedly visit Gaza, on Wednesday.

Earlier Tuesday, sources told Ma'an that the Palestinian factions agreed to a ceasefire agreement upon request by Egypt and the United Nations (UN.)

A total of seven Palestinians have been killed since Monday evening, while more than 30 were injured.
