Worthy Christian News » Israel-Palestinian Conflict » 72-Hour Truce Goes Into Effect


JERUSALEM (Worthy News)– As a 72-hour truce went into effect at midnight, Israel sent a delegation to Egypt to negotiate a ceasefire with Hamas. Over the weekend, Hamas claimed it still had tunnels going into Israel. In order to conceal its extensive tunnel system, Hamas has killed dozens of diggers fearing they would reveal site locations to Israel.
