Israel Policy Forum (IPF) welcomes the announcement of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. We remain guarded in our optimism that the halt to the fighting will be sustained.  It is sad that Hamas refused and violated numerous prior Egyptian ceasefire attempts which closely resemble the current arrangement.  The injuries, loss of life and trauma incurred by Israelis and Palestinians after 50 days of fighting have been incredibly tragic.  

Aug 22, 2014

This week began with continued negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian officials in Egypt. On Monday, Israel’s Shin Bet reported that it had foiled a Hamas coup attempt in the West Bank. On Tuesday, the negotiations once again collapsed when Hamas fired a barrage of rockets into Israel. In the renewed violence, Israel has been able to successfully target top Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, including Raed al-Attar, Mohammed Abu Shamala, and Mohammed Barhoum. The condition of Mohammed Deif, Chief Commander of the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, remains unknown.
