Egypt Proposes Ceasefire for Israel & Muslims in Gaza
5-20-21, The Israeli government has agreed to a mutual ceasefire with the Muslims aka Palestinian terror group Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, as proposed by Egypt. It would put an end to 11 days of rocket strikes on Israel and IDF retaliated bombardment of Gaza.
Israel's National Security Adviser Meir Ben Shabbat was authorized to start talks with Egypt on the ceasefire initiative, to work out the details and the starting date, Israeli media reported.
The Islamic Terror groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad began firing rockets into Israel on May 10, 2021. [..] Since then, more than 4,000 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israeli territory.
While many of the Hamas rockets misfired they fell back into the Gaza strongholds and killed Muslim civilians. In Israel most of them were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system, about a tenth got through. Most struck areas close to Gaza such as Sderot or Ashkelon, but some hit as far as Jerusalem and the suburbs of Tel Aviv killing Jewish civilians..
Meanwhile, IDF planes, drones, tanks and artillery bombed Gaza, destroying a number of prominent high-rises where terrorists had headquarters and terrror tunnels.
The truce will be "mutual and unconditional." Meanwhile, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have confirmed in a statement that they will observe the ceasefire. Earlier, Reuters cited a Hamas official who said a “mutual and simultaneous” truce with Israel will begin at 2am local time on Friday, May 22, 2021.
