From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 23 November 2023

The guns and missiles are still firing in the Gaza conflict but Thursday evening they may fall silent.

More than six weeks after the war began a temporary ceasefire was voted through by the Israeli cabinet Wednesday morning.

Alongside it is an agreement to release Palestinian prisoners in exchange for some of the people kidnapped by Hamas last month.

For Palestine, the deal means 150 arrested Palestinians will be released from Israeli custody, some of whom have been long imprisoned.

There are more than 8000 Palestinians detained in Israeli prisons. CNN's Oren Liebermann spoke to Corin Dann.
