Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer thanked the UN, Egypt, and Qatar for their assistance in reaching a ceasefire with the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza.

"The Government of Israel thanks the UN’s Mladenov, Egypt and Qatar for their efforts to improve the situation in Gaza and hopes that a long term agreement can be reached that will both maintain Israel’s security and enable Gaza’s development," Dermer said.

Israel and Hamas reached a ceasefire agreement after Hamas and other terrorist groups in Gaza launched about 500 rockets and mortars at southern Israel.
