Two-Hour Humanitarian Ceasefire in Shajaiya Neighborhood

The bigger the lie the more it is believed – until it one day is exposed.

Israel has agreed to a Hamas request for a two-hour humanitarian ceasefire in the Shejaiya “refugee camp” near Gaza City, where Hamas claims dozens of civilians were killed. The temporary truce does not apply to other areas, and the war is continuing in high gear on both sides.

The ceasefire began at 1:30 p.m. Israeli time and will allow medics to treat the wounded and remove the dead. In addition, the IDF has announced it will open a field hospital at the Erez Crossing on the northern border of Gaza for the benefit of Gaza civilians.

“The request was addressed by the international committee of the Red Cross through the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories,” The IDF stated.

“During this time the Palestinian population has been called to evacuate the area, move west and cross the Salah ad-Din road to Gaza City,” it added in a statement. “Any attempt to violate this window will not be tolerated.”

Hamas and the IDF were engaged in fierce clashes in Shejaiya Saturday night and Sunday, and Hamas has claimed it inflicted casualties on Israeli soldiers.

It has orchestrated lies and half-truths to lead foreign media into the trap of believing that Israel is carrying out a massacre, while Israel’s hands are tied because of information that cannot be revealed due to military censorship.

In the meantime, it has gained a major advantage in its propaganda campaign.

  1. Dani Katz says:

    This will give Hamas time to move rockets and other munitions to safer ground – its obvious Israel hit this area because of the belief that rockets and other weapons are in the Shejaiya area and is why Israel has been telling residents for two days to clear out of the area in anticipation of Israel attacking the area. Shejaiya is well known as being one area from which many rockets and missiles have been fired from and now, with a cease-fire, Hamas will be able to relocate their stock.

    I guess for Israel, it was really a case of ‘damned if you do, and damned if you don’t’ – can only hope no Israeli casualties will result from this ‘cease-fire’.
