The Gaza ceasefire has been extended for a further 24 hours after talks in Cairo, according to Palestinian and Israeli officials.
The previous ceasefire came into effect last Wednesday, but was due to expire at midnight on Monday.
Officials say that 2016 Palestinians and 66 Israelis have died since Israel began its offensive on Gaza on 8 July this year.
Earlier, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israeli forces would hit back hard if Hamas resumed rocket fire. The military was "ready for all scenarios" and were prepared "for very resolute action if fire resumes".
The 24-hour extension was confirmed by the Egyptian government, which said Palestinian and Israeli delegations had agreed to continue negotiations for a permanent deal, the BBC reports.
Negotiating teams returned to Egypt's capital Cairo for indirect talks on Sunday following consultations.
Palestinian negotiator Azzam al-Ahmad says he hopes the extension will give both sides time to complete the negotiations.
"We have agreed to an extension of one day only. Tomorrow we will either agree or we disagree. We hope that the next 24 hours are exploited and every minute so that we would reach an agreement or else the circle of violence will continue."
Another negotiator Qais Abdul Karim said on Sunday that Israel was seeking guarantees that Hamas and other factions in Gaza would be disarmed. Palestinians are calling for an end to the Israeli and Egyptian blockades of Gaza without preconditions, he said.
Hamas says it will not give up its weapons, while Israel insists it must maintain some control over Gaza's crossings to prevent the smuggling of weapons.
Israel is also concerned by the import of building materials into Gaza, saying they could be used by Hamas to rebuild its tunnel network.
