SDEROT, ISRAEL - JULY 15:  Israeli soldiers sleep next to armored personnel carriers near the Israeli-Gaza border on July 15, 2014 near Sderot, Israel.  As operation 'Protective Edge" enters it's eighth day of airstrikes by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) across the Gaza Strip, Egypt has this morning tabled a ceasefire agreement proposing a halting of fighting starting at 9am. Once violence has ceased, the proposal calls for Israel to open a border crossing into Gaza to allow the movement of goods and people. Israel has accepted the Egyptian proposal for a truce, however it is thought Hamas has rejected the deal.  (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)
