BREAKING: Israel Calls For Temporary Cease-Fire Thursday

Israel will halt military operations Thursday during a 5 hour window between 10am and 3pm local time (3am and 8am EST).

Israel Calls For Temporary Cease-Fire Thursday

This so called “humanitarian pause” comes at the request of the U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East, Robert Serry. Israel stressed that if Hamas launches rockets during this 5 hour window, it will respond “firmly and decisively”.

The purpose of this window is to allow civilians a chance to restock on much-needed supplies, and evacuate the area should they chose to do so — something Israel recommends.

The rockets continued to soar at Israel after word of the cease-fire was announced.
It remains to be seen whether Hamas will respect the cease-fire. Given past actions by the terrorists, there is very little hope that they will.
