Israel Announces Ceasefire

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has announced a ceasefire in the Israeli assault on the population of the Gaza Strip, it began at midnight on Saturday, Israeli time.
This is not the deal that Eygpt, Turkey, and France were pushing; Israel will not withdraw their ground troops, and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has threatened a renewal of attacks if Hamas fired more rockets at Israel.

Lets just remember that Hamas rockets have killed 4 Israelis during this conflict; Israeli forces have killed some 1205 Palestinians, many of them innocent civilians and others ordinary policemen.

By the way, before they ended their attack Israel shelled another U.N. installation.
