Israel and Hamas have reached a ceasefire (yes, I know you’re skeptical). The truce is supposed to last about six months and allow time for both sides to discuss the future of the conflict.
I guess the main discussions are supposed to revolve around the re-opening of the Rafah crossing and also Hamas may release a captured Israeli soldier. It’s weird to think that Gilad Shalit has been a captive this whole time and it honestly seems like the media just forgot about it until just now.
More than a few other ceasefires have collapsed rather quickly, so few people are holding their breath for this one.
