Israel and Hamas have agreed to end provocations along the border

Jerusalem has warned that if Hamas fails to meet its obligations, Israel will “act accordingly”.

Palestinian militants and Israel have agreed to end the one-week escalation of the conflict along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip. This was announced Monday by the ruling Islamist group in Gaza, Hamas and Israel.

Under an agreement brokered by Qatar, Hamas will stop launching explosive balloons and Israel will stop air strikes.

COGAT (Coordinator for the Government of Israel in the Palestinian Authority)
confirmed that the main Gaza cargo crossing would be open and fishermen could return to work within a radius of up to 15 nautical miles.

Palestinians and humanitarian groups called for an easing of Israel’s blockade of Gaza, fearing even greater difficulties since the COVID-19 outbreak there last week.
