Israel will decide this morning whether or not to accept the Egyptian’s long-term truce plan, according to Israel Army Radio (Galatz).

Last night, most of the Gazan factions said they would accept it.

According to the terms of the truce, Israel will allow the reopening of all the border crossings and expand the Gazan fishing zone.

Only afterwards will remaining issues be discussed such as the demilitarization of Gaza (unlikely to happen), and an airport and deep sea cargo port (for easier importing and unloading of larger weapon systems).

The White House is preparing an outline agreement of the ceasefire agreement to present to the UN Security Council when it is ready.

During previous long-term truce agreements with Hamas, Hamas used those periods to expand and improve their weapons and fighting capabilities.

If Hamas is not demilitarized, this truce period will simply be a waiting period before a larger, and more deadly war.

  4. Isreal should be very careful not to allow anything that will harm the state of Israel. Sea port and airport isn’t this things too big for hamas because they will not in their life love peace because it seems to me that they want to import light crafts. Please Israel put ur eyes down and watch this barbaric people that u treat and feed every day.

  32. All of a sudden these terrorists are negotiating with Israel and demanding that Israel stop. What happened to their statements, “We will destroy the Zionists.” Yea, sure.

    Now look who got destroyed boys. These Palestinian animals are running scared. Israel should continue to take its time and bomb the hell out of Gaza. Once this is over, Israel should stress that if Hamas ever start raining rockets over Israel again, this war will look like nothing compared to the next response.

    The Palestinians are now all crying over the deaths of their families–but they elected Hamas and were cheering Hamas rockets into Israel. Keep electing and cheering terrorists–and you and your families will continue to die.
