NEW YORK (WABC) -- In this edition of Eyewitness News Extra Time, we have the latest details on tenuous truce between Israel and Hamas to extend their cease-fire in the Middle East.
It's not over by a long shot, but for at least two more days, Israel and Hamas will keep turning their missiles into plowshares.
The cease-fire that has so far brought 69 hostages and 150 Palestinians to freedom has been extended. So too has the parade of trucks filled with food and medical supplies into Gaza.

New York is among a growing number of states targeting food waste. Globally, about a third of food is wasted. In the United States, it's even higher, at 40%, according to the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic. The U.S. spends about $218 billion each year growing and producing food that is wasted. About 63 million tons goes to waste, including 52.4 million tons that ends up in landfills and 10 million tons never harvested from farms.
Several states have joined New York in setting up systems allowing food to be donated to hungry families. New York's program is in its second year.
