Israel-Hamas cease-fire deal ‘virtually done,’ paper reports

(Worthy News) – After a two-day lull in violence along the Gaza Strip-Israel border, the Los Angeles Times quoted a senior Israeli official Monday as saying that a cease-fire agreement with Hamas, the Islamist organization that rules Gaza, is “virtually done.”

Following a spike in border violence last week, when Gaza terrorists fired some 180 projectiles at Israeli communities and Israeli airstrikes bombed dozens of Hamas terror targets in Gaza, Israel’s Defense Ministry said Monday that two days of “complete calm” on the border have led to possible easing of the closure of the Kerem Shalom commercial border crossing.

On Tuesday, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon confirmed a Channel 10 news report that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had met with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi in Egypt in May to discuss a long-term cease-fire in the Gaza Strip. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More…) ]
