Hamas: truce includes opening all Gaza crossings

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The leader of Hamas says the cease-fire deal with Israel includes agreement to open all border crossings with the Gaza Strip, including with Egypt.

Khaled Mashaal spoke to reporters after today’s truce deal was announced with both sides promising to halt attacks on each other and ease an Israeli blockade after eight days of fierce fighting.

The agreement calls for “opening the crossings and facilitating the movement of people and transfer of goods, and refraining from restricting residents’ free movement.”

Mashaal says that includes the key Rafah crossing with Egypt.

The word "Truce" translates into the word "RELOAD" in Gaza. And, why in the world would anyone agree to re-open all the border crossings now, maybe in a few months, but not now!!!

Thank God that the carnage finally stops and the prison gates to and from Gaza are finally open after five years of collective punishment/imprisonment for practicing democracy. Happy Thanksgiving! Viva Palestina!

The next step is to have Palestinian candidates running for office and allowing Palestinians to vote in the Israeli elections.
