Arab commentator Ehud Yaari discusses the details of a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel.

“We have here a game in which both parties are trying to reach an understanding but are being swept into a sort of escalation,” Yaari said.

Tensions may continue to rise “partly because of public pressure in Israel, partly because you can’t tell people in the south they can go on like this.”
