“All Palestinian factions shall stop all hostilities from the Gaza Strip against Israel, including rocket attacks and all attacks along the border.

“Opening the crossings and facilitating the movement of people and transfer of goods and refraining from restricting residents’ free movements and targeting residents in border areas, and procedures of implementation shall be dealt with after 24 hours from the start of the ceasefire.

“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.

  4. What a joke!! Why would Israel EVER agree to that? It will only enable the Gaza terrorists to re-arm and prepare for their next offensive. They must be laughing their asses off at Israel.

  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:
