The residents of Sderot and other communities abutting the Gaza Strip strove Friday morning for a semblance of normality. After firing 200 rockets, Hamas announced an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire Thursday night. The IDF responded that this must stand the test of a halt on mob disturbances and attacks on Israeli troops regularly staged by Hamas every Friday afternoon since March, as well as an end to the terror-by-arson of incendiary kites and balloons. The IDF has restricted children’s summer camps to protected buildings. Large military contingents stand ready outside the Palestinian enclave.
