Israel has given no official confirmation of agreeing to any ceasefire so far.
"With Egyptian and United Nations efforts it has been agreed to return to the era of calm between (Israel) and Palestinian factions", Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum told Reuters.
In recent days, the Israeli army has started to open fire at groups attempting to launch kites attached to cans of petrol that have torched close to 3,000 hectares (7,410 acres) of Israeli fields. A fourth Palestinian was shot dead in protests near the border. They later announced the soldier had succumbed to his wounds, marking the first Israeli military fatality in the area since the 2014 Gaza war.
Pinpointing the primary cause of Gaza's ills as Hamas' diversion of aid money from badly needed infrastructure projects to nefarious ends, such as the purchase of weapons and other terror-based enterprises, "fighting a morally bankrupt, decades-old war that has always been lost", Kushner, Greenblatt, and Friedman observe, "Life could significantly improve in short order for the Palestinian people if Hamas allowed it".
In a Washington Post opinion piece on Thursday, top Trump administration officials demanded that Hamas end its reign of terror and the "nightmare" it has visited on Palestinians in Gaza.
On Saturday funerals were held for the dead.

'Hamas works relentlessly to destroy Israeli lives (& Gazans suffer as a result of Hamas),' he tweeted, while offering condolences to the soldier's family. His name was not immediately published.
During the flare-up which lasted several hours, the Israeli military said its tanks had hit 68 Hamas targets and had "eliminated about 60 buildings and infrastructures and revoked significant military and command and control capabilities". No physical injuries or property damage was reported.
Air raids continued into Friday evening, with a number of explosions in different parts of Gaza, AFP correspondents said. "The strikes are still ongoing", the IDF said. Nonetheless, the fire on the troops at the border was "the most serious incident" since the 2014 conflict, Manelis said, and the IDF's Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot had spent the years since then ensuring that the army was ready for "whatever response is necessary".
Earlier, Hamas defied Mr. Lieberman's calls to stop launching incendiary balloons from the coastal enclave and he threatened to order a military offensive to prevent them.
'The ceasefire is crucial and shows neither side wants war but it's only temporary reprieve'. "We will not tolerate attacks endangering Israelis".
