Plan Would Open Gaza, Not Free Re-arrested Terrorists

The five-day humanitarian ceasefire for Gaza proposed by Secretary of State John Kerry of the United States would include the lifting of the blockade on Gaza, according to Palestinian Authority sources cited Friday by the London-based Arabic newspaper Al-Hayat. Terrorists who were released in exchange for soldier Gil'ad Schalit, who were re-arrested would not be re-released.

Hamas has reportedly agreed to the deal in principle. The Israeli Diplomatic and Security Cabinet is expected to discuss the proposal on Friday afternoon.
