'Humantarian Cease-Fire' Holding - for Now


A “humanitarian cease-fire” that went into effect 10 AM local time was holding, at least for its first hour.

The cease-fire, requested by UN officials, is set to last through 3 PM local time, giving Gaza residents five hours to stock up on supplies – and giving rocket-weary Israelis five hours out of the bomb shelters that have become second, and in some cases primary, homes over the last ten days of incessant rocket fire by Hamas terrorists.
