Israeli security sources said both parties had agreed to hold more talks in coming days.

In the opinion poll survey, carried by military radio, 36 percent of respondents said they did not expect the ceasefire to last a week while a further 26 percent thought that it would survive no longer than a month.

The truce on the suspension of military activity against Israel is conditioned on a halt to army incursions, targeted killings and house demolitions, as well as on the release of prisoners.
