Egypt has been making continuous attempt to somehow make both the leaders of Palestinian and Israel to hold off the war for some time, and sit and talk about their demands. Last week Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had walked away from the negotiation talks after Hamas had fired rockets in the south of Israel. Netanyahu stated that his country will not negotiate under fire and that his country’s military campaign will take time.
But now both the countries have finally accepted the Egyptian proposal of 72 hours truce to talk about their demands and negotiations. Whatever the outcome of these talks is, at least the residents of Gaza can calm down out of the terror for the next 72 hours of talk. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
