Israel plans to halt military operations for three hours a day near the city of Gaza to enable aid to flow through a humanitarian corridor it is setting up in the Hamas-ruled territory, a military source said on Wednesday.

"The idea is for the Israeli military to lay down its weapons every day from 1 pm to 4 pm, starting from Wednesday, in the area of the city of Gaza," the source said. Palestinian officials said they had been informed of the plan.
