Hamas Considers Cease-Fire as More Arson Balloons Land in Israel

Majed Khraishi was part of the Freedom Flotilla last month

What Happened: Israel and militant group Hamas are allegedly working on a deal to ensure that peace between the two sides holds, Haaretz reported August 3.

Spokesman for the Israeli army stated the ship was under surveillance, and that the military had made it clear, to the activists on the ship, that they were violating the maritime blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip and that "any humanitarian aid could be transferred to Gaza through the port of Ashdod".

Hamas officials had no immediate comment on the ship's seizure.

The short film shows scenes of Israeli soldiers shooting Palestinians, including Yaser Murtaja, who was shot dead by Israeli forces while covering mass rallies along the Gaza border.

The broadcaster said it was the highest number of arson attacks since Hamas declared an unofficial ceasefire with Israel last month.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza identified the boy as Muath Ziad al-Suri, confirming that he had succumbed to the injuries he sustained, by Israeli live bullets, on Friday afternoon in eastern al-Breij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip.

Saleh al Arouri's arrival in Gaza has been interpreted in Israeli and Palestinian media as "relevant to negotiations through third parties for a long-term agreement between Hamas and Israel."

The leaders of the terror group Hamas, including many of those in exile, gathered for the first time in Gaza on Friday to discuss a potential extended cease-fire with Israel.

On Sunday, Nickolay Mladenov, the United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, said on Twitter that he held "productive meetings" with Egyptian officials in efforts to de-escalate Gaza tensions and resolve humanitarian issues.

"The troops are responding with riot dispersal means and operating according to standard operating procedures", said the IDF.

In one incident, several Palestinians crossed the border fence, entered Israeli territory at the Kerem Shalom crossing, and threw firebombs and stones, before fleeing back into Gaza.

Twenty-nine fires erupted in Israeli communities ‎near the Gaza Strip border in a single day this week, as Palestinian ‎arson terrorism continued to wreak havoc near the ‎volatile frontier. The ministry says that 159 Palestinians have been killed since the start of the "March of Return" protests on March 30.
