Report: Cease-fire Extended

Israel’s Channel 2 reported Monday evening that the cease-fire with Palestinian Arab terror factions in Gaza has been extended, although it is not yet clear for how long.

This morning the IDF predicted that rockets would be falling this evening.

Israeli Air Force jets were flying overhead in a southerly direction as Arab media sources also reported a “breakthrough” in the indirect cease-fire talks in Cairo, less than four hours before the current cease-fire was due to expire.

Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned earlier in the day that Israel “is ready for all scenarios and will respond with force if the rocket fire resumes.”

At a meeting in Ashdod with Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Netanyahu said, “The eternal people are not afraid of a long road. The combination of endurance and strength will help us achieve the goal of this operation; peace and security for all of Israel’s citizens.”

Ya’alon added that Operation Protective Edge had not yet ended, warning, “As we have promised, we are not stopping [this operation] until we have achieved peace and security… Hamas will not drag us into a war of attrition,” he vowed. “If it tries, it will find itself facing one of its own.”

Arab sources in Gaza, meanwhile, reported an increase in ‘air traffic’ over the enclave. It is expected that an announcement regarding an extension of the cease-fire — or the lack of an agreement — will be made by 11 pm local time.
