According to Egypt, Hamas and Isreal are close to reaching an 10 day cease-fire. I dont know all what this is going to do. I believe it should be longer give the Palestinians more time to mourn there loses, and to be able to get food and Supplies. They are all desperately needed in Gaza. Food, water, and anything else that would help them survive. With the death toll over 1000 they need time to mourn and bury their loved ones. The only way Isreal will agree they state that Hamas needs to stop shelling Isreal with rockets, and to stop the smuggling of weapons underneath Egypt.
