How the “Cease Fire” Ended (in June): the Backstory

7 Jan

David Saranga of the Israeli Consulate in New York, posted an informative backgrounder today on the story behind the June “cease fire” between Israel and Hamas. His article points out that while rocket and mortar fire from Gaza slowed during the “lull,” it never fully stopped. David goes on to say that rather than use the “state of calm” to promote peace and to build a civilian infrastructure in Gaza, Hamas took advantage of the situation to expand its terrorist capabilities. For more information go to David’s site.
