Israel, Hamas Agree To Another 72-Hour Cease-Fire

Israel and Hamas have agreed to a 72-hour cease-fire on Sunday, according to AFP. The two sides have been negotiating through Egyptian mediators in Cairo for the past week. A barrage of rockets was launched toward the coastal city of Ashkelon on Sunday afternoon even as reports emerged that Hamas was prepared to accept the 72-hour cease-fire. After sporadic rocket fire targeted the Israeli communities surrounding Gaza throughout Sunday morning and afternoon, heavy rocket fire just after 3 p.m. set off repeated sirens in Ashkelon and the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council. At least one rocket was intercepted over Ashkelon, with no immediate reports of injuries or damage. I believe that’s 7 cease-fires that have been broken by Hamas. Let’s see if this one lasts.
