“Other matters as may be requested shall be addressed.”

“Implementation mechanism:

“Setting up the zero hour understanding to enter into effect.

“Egypt shall receive assurances from each party that the party commits to what was agreed upon.

  6. Liad Bar-el says:

    A couple of hours after the "agreement" went into effect, Hamas fired 20 rockets against Israel. IMO, they already broke the "agreement"; so, now it's null and void.

  7. Anonymous says:
