Hamas and Israel Accept Another Short Cease-Fire

Hamas and Israel Accept Another Short Cease-Fire
Posted August 10th, 2014 @ 3:58pm by KFBK News - Scott McCormick

Another short cease-fire has been accepted by Hamas and Israel.

The temporary truce opens the door for indirect negotiations, but as we hear from CBS News Correspondent Robert Berger, in Jerusalem, both sides are far apart:

"The truce clears the way for an Israeli delegation to go to Cairo for indirect talks with Hamas on a long-term cease fire. Hamas wants Israeli to lift a crippling blockade on Gaza while Israeli is demanding the demilitarization of Gaza. Egyptian mediators will try to bridge the gaps," Berger said.
