Israel and militant group Hamas have agreed on a truce starting on Thursday, Palestinian and Israeli officials have told the BBC.

Israeli officials confirmed the start of the truce, but said Israel was "looking to see if this is serious".

A Hamas official said he was confident all militant groups in Gaza would abide by the agreement, brokered by Egypt.
