Israel and the Islamist group Hamas have no desire to go to war, said the Qatari envoy who helped mediate a truce between Hamas and Israel.
Mohammed Al-Emadi said, both sides are committed to the truce.
Israel says it has killed at least eight Palestinian militants in border confrontations who tried to infiltrate its territory.
Hamas has fought three wars with Israel over the past decade.
Tensions along the Gaza border are high with frequent fatalities.
Some two million Palestinians live in Gaza.
Mohammed Al-Emadi said, “Both sides have no war intentions but there is a lack of money and the humanitarian situation is bad, should people feel financially at ease, the ghost of war will be totally removed.”
The deal, brokered by Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations, has not been publicly acknowledged by Israel.
