Rocket sirens 90 minutes after Islamic Jihad, Egypt claim ceasefire

A ceasefire at 5.30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, claimed by a senior Islamic Jihad spokesman and Egyptian official, broke down after 90 minutes when rocket sirens were heard over southern Israel. There was no confirmation from Israel of any truce agreement after 48 hours of heavy Jihad rocket fire and IDF attacks on its Gaza infrastructure followed the Baha Abu Al-Atta killing. The IDF paused in its attacks Thursday morning.

Wednesday night, Islamic Jihad leader Zeyad al-Nakhala reportedly laid down terms for a ceasefire from Beirut.  They included Israel ending targeted killings and its military responses to Gaza border protests, as well as measures to ease the Israeli blockade of the Palestinian enclave. If these terms were not met by Israel, he said, his group could continue its cross-border attacks indefinitely.

    I think Oslo allows Gaza to have an Army, can not remember the number of fighters and airplanes, but my guess is for a million or two.
    Only, this was in the nineties, long forgotten history.
    Wait a minute to ask my grandpa.

      These are small details, who cares about old times accords?
      And the UN archive for for previous century I think should be in garbage by now.
      Yeah, I think a million fighters and 1000 tanks maximum should be Ok.
