A ceasefire has taken hold after more than a week of conflict between Israel and Gaza. On Nov. 14, an Israeli missile killed Ahmed Jabari, the leader of Hamas’s military wing. Israel says its wider air campaign came in response to rocket attacks from Gaza and the government called on 75,000 Israeli Defense Forces reserve soldiers to prepare for a potential ground invasion. The violence resulted in the deaths of more than 150 Palestinians and six Israelis. The IDF launched hundreds of airstrikes on Hamas-related targets in Gaza, while Gaza fired more than 1,000 rockets at Israel, hitting sites as far away as Tel Aviv. The ceasefire agreement was announced Nov. 21 in a joint news conference with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr. An incident Nov. 23—in which Israeli troops fired on Gazans who pushed against Israel’s border fence and killed one person—threatened to end the peace, but the shaky ceasefire still remains.
