An agreement between Israel and Hamas had decided to extend the temporary truce in Gaza for five more days, Egypt has said.
The announcement came here on Wednesday, moments before the existing cease-fire was to expire. Egyptian capital is the hosting these talks.
It was been accepted by both the parties to allow more time for indirect negotiations to paper over differences.
The negotiations aim at reaching a complete peace agreement, according to a statement issued by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry.
The Israeli delegation left for Tel Aviv late on Wednesday and the joint Palestinian delegation will leave on Thursday.
