An Egyptian led truce has brought the violence in Gaza to a halt, media sources have confirmed.
A Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad and Israel have finally agreed to halt hostilities across the Gaza Strip border. This has ended a two-day confrontation that left 34 Palestinians dead and more than 100 injured.
Fighting between Islamic Jihad and the Israeli army erupted after Israel assassinated a senior commander in the Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad.
Many civilian casualties along with loss of school property have also been reported in the violence.
It is being said that these moments of violence and the assassination of the Islamic Jihad group leader has been used by the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has grounds to meet his own political agendas.
People of Gaza are also living on borrowed time like most other Islamic nations where power-hungry governments or militia are fighting at the drop of a hat.
Similar violence had rocked Syria for a long time. The silence and calm are being seen as a temporary measure in light of the continuing difficult humanitarian and economic conditions in the Gaza Strip.
Strangely, the other militia faction Hamas and its military wing did not respond to the Israeli shelling this time. It seemed to be an orchestrated battle between the Israeli Army and Islamic Jihad targets.
Political analysts have reasons to believe that the attack was orchestrated by Netanyahu to take the focus off his corruption indictment that had strengthened Gantz’s political position which came with support from the Arab Joint List.
The list was willing to support a minority government but has now withdrawn support post the unpleasant happenings in Israel.
The attack includes the assassination of Islamic Jihad leader Bahaa Abu Al-Atta and his wife in Gaza, as well as the failed attack in Damascus against Akram Ajoury.
