I guess the jets I heard a few minutes ago and an explosion or two must be Israel's welcome wagon for the truce.

Sky news ticker says:
Israel agrees to truce in Gaza but will not lift blockade.
Egyptian and Palestinian officials say cease fire has been agreed.

When it takes effect,who knows-not yet if bombs are still going off.

Just on sky news that Israel bombed the safe area that they told the Palestinian civilians to move to in the leaflets they dropped.

We've heard this a few times now...

I think I understand Natanyahu's strategy now. When Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities, they'll be having to worry about simultaneous attacks from Irans Shabab missiles, Hezbollah in the north and Hamas in the south. By getting rid of Hamas' missile capabilities and destroying their government facilities/training centers/bomb factories etc, Israel freed themselves from having to allocate military resources to attending to a southern barrage of missiles from Hamas.

Clever tactic. I don't see Israel entering Gaza for a ground offensive. They've done what they needed to do.

Iron Dome running short of missiles so a cease fire is reached.

It is currently 7:18PM, so by my calculations (and I am hardly an expert in military time) but I think that 20:00 would be 8:00PM?? So about 45 minutes I should think.

Anyone out there feel free to correct me if I am wrong here.

Its horribly insane to me that any ceasefire does not start from the very moment of the decision-but no,lets have another 45mins of killing people first...

Don't tell me it takes that long to stop all attacks these days with all the technology in play.

Hope it holds if we get there anyway.
