Long-term ceasefire agreed for Gaza Strip

First published in News

HOPES rose yesterday of an end to the carnage in the Gaza Strip as Egypt brokered a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militant group Hamas.

Hamas negotiator Moussa Abu Marzouk said the deal would end seven weeks of fighting that has left more than 2,200 people dead.

Israel agreed to ease its blockade of Gaza to allow in aid supplies and building materials.

Talks between the two sides will continue in Egypt starting in the next month.

The breakthrough came after Israeli jets bombed two high-rise buildings in Gaza City. The Basha Tower was flattened and the Italian Complex, with homes, shops and offices, was damaged.

From The Guardian:

"Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said: "Hamas is grateful to the people of Gaza who sacrificed their homes, children and money. We announce the victory today after achieving our goals." "

So Hamas is delighted that so many Palestinians offered up their children to be sacrificed in order to achieve Hamas's goals.

They truly are barbarians.
