Ceasefire in the making

Reports are that Israel, Hamas and Egypt agree informally to a ceasefire and the end of the Gaza seige. []

Rocket Attack on Ashkelon
( Palestinian Authority terrorists in Gaza ended a four-day lull Tuesday with a rocket attack on Ashkelon. The missile exploded in an area south of the coastal city just hours after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned residents while touring Ashkelon that it will never be possible to completely stop rocket attacks on the city. Report: Israel wants month-long truce with Hamas

Jerusalem Post: Israel is demanding that a formal calm with Hamas be preceded by a 30-day "feeling the pulse" period, the London-based daily Al-Quds al-Arabi reported Tuesday.
