BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The president of the International Committee of the Red Cross was to begin a "three-day mission" to Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel Tuesday as a 72-hour ceasefire came into effect, a statement said.

The ICRC said in a statement that president Peter Maurer is traveling to the region "to see for himself the human cost of the on-going conflict."

Maurer is to hold talks with senior Palestinian leaders and Israeli leaders in addition to volunteers for the Palestine Red Crescent and Israeli Magen David Adom societies.

He will also meet with people "directly affected by the conflict."
