Gaza-Israel ceasefire

Monday, December 3, 2012 @ 10:22 pm by admin

A ceasefire was agreed at around 19:00 on November 21, 2012 over the Israel-Gaza violence but with the upgraded status of the Palestinians to a "non-member observer state" during the United Nations General Assembly on November 29, 2012, Israel is not taking it lightly.

According to BBC News Middle East, "Israel angrily condemned the Palestinian move as a "gross violation" of previous agreements."

As a response somehow, Israel wants to build new settlements in East Jerusalem and West Bank. Palestinians strongly oppose the plans.

What will happen to the agreed ceasefire now that there are new conflicts?

According to BBC News in the Middle East, "Israel launched its military offensive against Gaza on 14 November, marking the latest eruption in a conflict with Palestinian militants which has raged between the two sides for years. The latest violence has left dozens of people dead, many of them civilians, and shows no sign of ending soon."

The residents of Gaza are confused and desperate to escape seeking refuge from one full shelter to another in order to stay alive.
