#FactOfTheDay 14/11/2018 – Hamas and Israel agree on a ceasefire after two days of violence

Hamas officials, as well as other smaller groups, have announced overnight that they have accepted the agreement mediated by the UN and Egypt. This agreement comes after two days of intense violence that has been described as the worse since the 2014 fights. According to Israel, over 400 rockets have been launched from Gaza and Israeli warplanes carried out more than 100 bombings. Hamas has stated that the escalation of violence is a response to a secret Israeli operation inside the Gaza strip. Seven Palestinians lost their lives and one person was killed in Israel.
