BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The president of the International Committee of the Red Cross was to begin a "three-day mission" to Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel Tuesday as a 72-hour ceasefire came into effect, a statement said.

The ICRC said in a statement that president Peter Maurer is traveling to the region "to see for himself the human cost of the on-going conflict."

Maurer is to hold talks with senior Palestinian leaders and Israeli leaders in addition to volunteers for the Palestine Red Crescent and Israeli Magen David Adom societies.

He will also meet with people "directly affected by the conflict."

Wonder how long Maurer will remain in Gaza, the West Bank and Israel, prior to the ICRC's co-sponsorship with the Institute for National Security Studies, an Israeli think tank, of the third conference on Challenges of Warfare in Densely Populated Areas. Amos Yadlin, retired Israeli general and director of this National Security Studies group is, yes, the same guy for whom an arrest warrant was issued by Turkey for his role in the Mavi Marmara crime. The conference will be held in September.
