Gaza truce agreed, Hamas says, to take effect in hours

By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Jeffrey Heller | Reuters – 30 mins ago

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire in the Gaza conflict will go into effect later on Tuesday, a Hamas official said.

There was no immediate Israeli comment. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said earlier he was open to a long-term deal to halt Palestinian rocket attacks on his country.

"An agreement for calm has been reached. It will be declared at 9 o'clock (1900 GMT) and go into effect at midnight (2200 GMT)," Hamas official Ayman Taha told Reuters from Cairo, where efforts have been under way to end seven days of hostilities.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was heading to the region from Asia and was expected in Jerusalem late on Tuesday for talks with Netanyahu on Wednesday.

Earlier, Egypt's state media quoted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi as announcing "that the farce of Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip will end on Tuesday"

Mursi said, according to the reports, that "efforts to conclude a truce between the Palestinian and Israeli sides will produce positive results in the next few hours".

Amid international efforts mounted to stop the fighting and avert a possible Israeli ground invasion of the densely populated Gaza Strip, Israel pressed on with air strikes and Palestinian rockets flashed across the border on Tuesday.

"No country would tolerate rocket attacks against its cities and against its civilians. Israel cannot tolerate such attacks," Netanyahu said with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who arrived in Jerusalem from talks in Cairo, at his side.

Any bets on how long this will last? Muzzies have no self-control.

Of course, the cessation will last just long enough for both sides to cash the checks the American taxpayer will send them.

Exactly. Hamas is low on military stockpiles and needs to buy some time until the supplies arrive from Iran.

Officials in Israel Tuesday night are now reporting that claims that Israel has agreed to a ceasefire are false.

Muslim Five Step Plan:

1 - Bomb Israelis with rockets until they begin to retaliate

2 - When the Israelis strike back claim they are using inappropriate force to kill innocent women and children

3 - When stockpiles of rockets and bombs run low agree to a cease fire

4 - Restock bombs and rockets during the cease fire

5 - Go to Step 1 and repeat.

Hamas got the bribe from the GCC delivered by the Emir of Qatar and agreed to their message delivered by their messenger Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi

Must be a bad day to bleed. What I read made it sound like they’d only fired 10% of their fireworks. They did get Egypt and Turkey to move their way a bit more. Was that the goal? It will be interesting to see what happens once Iran gets the bomb, and they will. It’s too bad the Lord had to put the chosen people right in the middle of a pile of crap. Otherwise, the Shiites and Sunnis would be so busy killing themselves they wouldn’t have time for us.

It won’t last very long,and I’m wondering what contrived
“incident” will be sufficient to re-boot it from the Pali
side of the equation, and start more attacks.
There have been cease-fires before,and “hostilities” have
ALWAYS
EITHER WAY, expect this “cease-fire” to be played to the hilt as a great triumph for the Obama Administration.

Truce? Try surrender. This time will only be used to allow reinforcements and resupply.

It’ll take effect when they have exhausted all of their rockets.

The question is: How much of Gaza can the IDF destroy before 5:00pm, est?

Personally, I think the IDF should go on full bore ‘Ignore’ and Charley Mike (Continue the Mission)!

Hillary’s only there to cut another tax funded aid check for more Iranian missiles. She could care less about Israel. Except to humiliate them.

They certainly call it HUDNA on Al-Jazeera, which I watched this AM.

The agreement should contain the clause that if even one missile is fired from Gaza or Lebanon, that Israel has the right to go in and clean house, without any condemnation from Egypt, or any other Arab state.

That video clip should be shown on national news with an explanation of how a Hudna was used to destroy the city of Mecca by Mohammad. Hudnas historically have been used to rearm and then attack by Muslims committed to Jihad.

Keep bombing until the second the “cease fire” goes into effect, then stop. Resume the moment the first rocket is launched from Gaza, before it can even reach its target if possible. Meanwhile, say nothing to acknowledge there even *is* a “cease fire.” These damnable “cease fires” are only excuses for the Palies to rest up, bandage up and load up for another go at the Joooos.

The Muzzies always want a truce, when they are about to get their collective arses handed to them.

Israel should invade and arrest every Hamas operative , and execute them on the spot.ALL OF THEM.

Problem solved. Israel knows who the mid to upper Hamas operatives are, and has been picking them off daily, one after the other. Thats why Hamas wants a truce.

I hope Israel invades and takes care of these Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood POSs in the next while. I love to see Islamofascists cooking off for good.

I think all they were doing was testing to see how effective the Iron Dome defence might be under a concentrated bombardment.

That makes a lot of sense startegically. Iran is likely even now designing a delivery vehicle for its nuclear
devices, and so they have to decide what kind of parabolic trajectory is most likely to succeed. One wonders who is helping Iran with their rocketry? The Obama admin. sub rosa? Russia?
