Israel Ceasefire + Withdrawl

The West Article – Tenuous night of peace falls over Gaza

The Palestinians don’t expect this cease-fire to last long, and quite frankly, neither do I.

The Israeli government claims they’ve struck a decisive blow against Hamas, but as far as I can see, they’re trying to pretend there’s reason for the pointless bloodshed, especially after mounting international pressure to cease the attacks, amidst the increasing civilian death toll, and disruptions to their livelihood.
