BREAKING NEWS: Israel and Hamas agree ceasefire

Israel has approved a unilateral ceasefire to put an end to an 11-day military offensive operation in the Gaza Strip, which was confirmed by a Hamas official and Israeli media.

A Hamas official told Reuters that Hamas and Israel will enter a “mutual and simultaneous” truce from 2 am on Friday (11 pm GMT Thursday).

Israeli media reported that Benjamin Netanyahu’s security cabinet had approved the truce, on the basis of what one official was quoted as calling “quiet in exchange for quiet”.

On Thursday in one last push, before the ceasefire, the Israeli army fired more than 100 airstrikes that targeted Hamas infrastructure in the north of Gaza. According to the Israeli army, Hamas infrastructure includes hospitals, apartment buildings and basements of civilian homes.

Israel and Hamas agree on a ceasefire

In the last 11 days, the siege on Gaza has been relentless, rocket fire, drone bombing and a military ground offensive. The world has witnessed this latest siege, which is an act of genocide, ethnic cleansing.

  • Israel has usurped Palestinians from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah
  • Killed over 240 civilian Palestinians, 70% of them were women and children
  • Shot babies/toddlers with rubber bullets
  • SIlenced and intimidated journalists
  • Bombed Al Jazeera headquarters in Palestine
  • Bombed Associated Press (AP) in Palestine
  • Destroyed housing complexes
  • Bombed at least 2 hospitals

During this siege, the United States President, Joe Biden and his Democratic Party have once again blocked efforts at the UN Security Council to issue a statement calling on Israel to stop its military offensive, stressing instead its own diplomatic efforts. Speaking at the White House, President Joe Biden said he commended Mr Netanyahu in a phone call after the ceasefire agreement was announced.

In Israel 12 people, including two children, have been killed, out of which two Arabs living in Israel were killed by Israeli police.

Palestinian journalist killed in Gaza City – reports

Israel-Gaza reports – Palestinian journalist killed in overnight airstrikes in Gaza City 

There have been reports that a Palestinian journalist was among those killed in overnight Israeli airstrikes. 

Palestinian journalist Yusef Abu Hussein died when warplanes bombed a house near the Sheikh Radwan cemetery in northern Gaza City, Palestinian news agency Wafa says.

Wafa adds three others were killed in a strike on a house. 

The BBC was told by local sources that two militants were killed when warplanes targeted an apartment in Gaza City.

Doctors also told the source a woman suffered a heart attack and died when a neighbour’s home was hit. 

The Israeli military says it bombed part of a Hamas tunnel network.

Gaza’s health ministry says 219 people, including 63 children, have been killed there since the hostilities began on 10 May. The Israeli military says it has killed more than 160 militants.

Israel-Gaza: Netanyahu ‘not standing with stopwatch’

Israel-Gaza: ‘Won’t rule anything out’ – Netanyahu 

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu briefed foreign journalists on the efforts to end the fighting.

“We’re not standing with a stopwatch,” he said. “We are taking care of the operation’s objectives.”

He said Israel was fighting to restore quiet and to maximise the amount of time that any truce with Hamas would last.

“There are only two ways that you can deal with them. You can either conquer them – and that’s always an open possibility – or you can deter them,” Netanyahu said.

“We are engaged right now in forceful deterrence, but I have to say we don’t rule out anything.”

Israel assessing truce conditions – military source

Israel- Palestine: Israel assessing truce conditions, hoping Hamas ‘understands the message’  

An Israeli military source has told AFP news agency that Israel is assessing whether conditions are right to halt its air campaign – but is preparing for “more days” of strikes if necessary. 

“We are looking at when is the right moment for a ceasefire,” said the source.

The source added Israel was evaluating whether they have achieved their objective if downgrading the fighting capacity of Hamas. 

“The question is whether Hamas understands the message” that its rocket barrages towards Israel cannot recur, said the source.

Israel’s barrage of air strikes Gaza resume, toppling buildings

Dozens of air strikes Gaza pounded the city on Tuesday as US President Joe Biden expressed support for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in a phone call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He essentially strategised with Benjamin Netanyahu as to how long the US should keep blocking any UN intervention.

A new front in the conflict opened as the Israeli military said it also shelled Lebanon in response to six failed rocket launches from southern areas in the neighbouring country.
