Yesterday’s hopes for a ceasefire in the ongoing Gaza conflict failed, with Israel blaming Hamas and Hamas claiming they’d never even been informed by Egypt of the plan and simply read about it in the media.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now promising even further escalation of the conflict as it enters day 8, though it is still unclear if or when a ground invasion will be launched.
All told, the week-long war has left 220 Gazans dead and 1,500 wounded. The first Israeli death of the conflict was reported today, and 15 Israelis are reported wounded. The slain Israeli was a volunteer, distributing food to troops along the border, and was hit with a mortar shell.
Hamas is said to have sought a more permanent settlement than the proposed ceasefire, while Israel’s security cabinet apparently approved the matter, though the only comments from cabinet members ahead of the meeting were all critical of the idea.

"one Israeli killed"
It is a LIE
"194 Gazans killed"
It is a LIE
The article states 204 killed, not 194. How many of those were children? You paid and unpaid hasbara trolls and Israeli-kissing lunatics have lost the battle of public opinion. Only psychopaths and stupid people make excuses for killing kids. You can have Jesus Christ himself go on CNN and tell everyone Israel is just defending itself, but so? By killing unarmed civilians and non-combatants, you make yourselves look like the satanic scumbags all your detractors claim you to be. How smart some people can be and so stupid at the same time.
Two things – the Isreali said to have been killed is said to have been a 'volunteer' bringing supplies to troops… so a combatant, then..? Has anyone heard this reported as such?
Also, a "war," really? One side is slaughtering & the other side is putting up an almost useless, random & token resistance with nearly symbolic weapons.
It's a war targeting civilians.
Tony Bliar's 'truce' was a lie anyway. Why is that man free to roam around offering ideas to the world? He should be in a cell somewhere, or awaiting trial.
Branding this as a war is in itself a big lie.
But the world is not stupid. They see a massacre as a massacre, by Israel.
