Worthy Christian News » Israel-Palestinian Conflict » Israel, Hamas Agree to 72-hour Truce


JERUSALEM (Worthy News)– As Operation Protective Edge enters its fifth week, Israel and Hamas have agreed to an Egyptian proposal for a 72-hour ceasefire beginning Tuesday morning.

A 72-hour Egyptian cease-fire proposal accepted by both Israel and Hamas went into effect Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. Despite the impending truce, Hamas fired a salvo of rockets at communities throughout Israel just minutes before the cease-fire came into effect.

Sirens went off in Ashdod, Ashkelon, Sdot HaNegev, Kiryat Malachi, Rehovot, Rishon Lezion, Gedera, Lod, Ramle, and in Ma'ale Adumim which is east of Jerusalem as 17 rockets were fired from Gaza. Six of those rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome. — Source
