Spokesman Peter Lerner says Saturday's lull in fire will also allow aid groups to rush through food distribution to residents. Medics also use the time to pick up casualties in areas of fighting.

Three hour remission? well at least Israel is taking the oppertunity to earn some brownie points from the international community for this effort, How much "stocking up" do you think this three hour halt will effect? will it give enough time for some of the unfound dead and wounded to be removed? we'll see and hopfully we'll see more of these(from both sides!)

gives them 3 hours to try and find more journalists and rush more residents in to safe houses before blowing them up.

Unfortunatly, I think your right and in addition Israel will only use this to bolster their failing image.
