Great Cease Fire!

We reported yesterday on the cease fire agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, under which Israel will stop its operations in Gaza in return for the Palestinians’ promise to stop rocket attacks, suicide bombings and other forms of violence emanating from Gaza. The agreement didn’t last long:

Militants fired at least five rockets into southern Israel from Gaza Sunday on the first day of a cease-fire agreement. No one was injured in the attacks.
Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attacks and said it would not agree to a cease-fire until Israeli military activity also ended in the occupied West Bank.
