Ceasing Fire

Al Jazeera reports:

Israeli sources said Israel had agreed to the truce but would not lift its blockade on the Palestinian territory, a condition earlier set by Hamas. Al Jazeera’s Peter Greste, reporting from Cairo, stressed that “the devil is in the details” of the agreement. “It will be the details that will determine whether this is just a pause in hostilities … or something that leads to a lasting solution,” he said, adding that Egypt had played an “absolutely crucial” role in sealing the deal. Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu agreed to “give a chance” to the ceasefire, a statement from his office said.
