Well, we have another “truce” between Israel and hamas – the terrorist organization which runs Gaza.
From an article at israelnationalnews.com:
Israel confirmed Friday morning that it had reached an agreement for a truce with the Hamas terror organization, hours after Arab media outlets reported on the deal.
A senior Israeli official confirmed to Army Radio – Galey Tzahal that the Israeli government had indeed signed on to the deal, which would soften economic sanctions on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip in exchange for an end to incendiary bomb attacks on Israeli border towns and farm land.
As part of the agreement, Israel will expand the fishing area open to Gazan boats to 15 miles from the shore. Dozens of boats confiscated for straying from the approved fishing area will be returned as part of the deal.
In addition, Israel will resume the transfer of fuel to Gaza through the Kerem Shalom border crossing, which was closed on Tuesday in response to the ongoing balloon terrorism.
So here we go again. Another “deal” in which Israel provides something substantial, in return for which hamas provides nothing but a promise not to terrorize Israel.
Maybe, someday, hamas will be asked to provide something a little more substantial – like, for example, renunciation of the hamas charter, which specifically commits the organization to obliterating Israel and killing every Jew everywhere (not just in Israel).
Let me know when that happens, and maybe I’ll be impressed. Until then – based on all previous experience – this “truce” will last only until hamas gets hold of enough weaponry to launch more attacks.
