Israel’s negotiating team, consisting of Shin Bet Director Yoram Cohen, former head of Military Intelligence Production Division Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad and Yitzhak Molcho, has arrived in Cairo to begin ceasefire talks with Hamas officials. The talks will be moderated by Egyptian officials.

US Secretary of State John Kerry said the Palestinians would have to surrender the missiles in their possession in order for the border crossings to be opened. Speaking to the BBC, Kerry called Hamas’ prosecution of the current mini-war “unbelievable” and placed the responsibility for the conflict squarely on the shoulders of Hamas leaders.

However, Hamas leaders say they “won” the current war and added they would not agree to demilitarising the Strip. One Hamas spokesman, Izzat al-Rishq, said that Hamas would consider extending the current ceasefire past the current three days, but another spokesman, Osama Hamdan, added that the terror group would not agree to a return to the previous situation – namely “seige” and closed borders.

Egypt told the Palestinian delegation that their demand to establish an airport and a naval port in Gaza would  not be up for discussion

  1. Finish the job, Bibi.

  2. good luck rebuilding Gaza without concrete.

  3. And that spells another war in a year or less. So, what will Binyamin Netanyahu do?! Pretend we won and accept this so called truce? Or grow some balls and finish the job?

  4. Judith Dowla says:

    Hamas, exodus to Iran or Iraq as more suitable for you.

  5. That sounds like an anti ceasefire

  6. Judith Dowla says:

    “Down the only road I’ve ever known.” Whitesnake

  7. Don’t Trust Them! Already 2 Soldiers Dead and 1 abducted! That’s just after the Cease Fire!

  8. As if they ‘re all gonna lie down on a road and wait for a passing truck …!

  9. Geela Gordon says:

    ceasefire talks won’t hold up, because hamas doesn;t go by the rules

  10. David Grim says:

    Sounds like Chamas wants time to rearm and retunnel. Is this in Israel’s best interest.

  11. So they are needing to re supply more than they expected, maybe wait for U S tax money to start new tunnels.

  12. What does the UN and EU say to that?

  13. Not worth the paper the ceasefire is printed on
