This is all well and good. But now it's time to begin the evacuation of Israel's illegal settlements in the West Bank.

Regardless of its propaganda and lies, it is barbaric israel who asked for the truce.

The Agreement clearly shows that the conditions (regarding especially the crossing section C of the Agreement) of the Palestinian Resistance prevail, and that the first step is for barbaric israel to stop its murdering campaign and extrajudicial assassinations.

The wording of this agreement is a bit suspect: "shall stop" in A.should stop in B.after 24hrs in C.???

I am not celebrating yet. The devil is in the details. No mention of the continued brutal illegal occupation in other parts of Palestine. Or the continued land theft and colonization. Peace, lasting honourable peace is between equals. This is nothing more than yet another widening of the gap between Gaza and the West Back. Remember who you're dealing with. Their record of aggression and treachery speaks for itself. In UNITY lies salvation. Be careful what you wish for. You might just get it.
