According to Israeli media, Israel and Hamas have entered into a six-month ceasefire along the border with Israel. Hamas is reportedly committing to end the violent riots at the border and a buffer zone 300 meters from the border must be restored. In addition, the launch of kites and balloons with firebombs and explosives across the border must be stopped. In addition, attempts to break the maritime border between Gaza and Israel must also be stopped, writes Times of Israel.

For over a year, thousands and sometimes tens of thousands of Palestinians have been protesting along the border with Israel. It has often developed into violent riots. Several have tried to enter Israel or destroy the border fence. Explosives have also been thrown at Israeli soldiers at the border. Hamas has now promised to stop the riots.

In return, Israel will again allow fishing up to 15 nautical miles off the coast of Gaza, it will be presented to the UN cash-for-work program and it will open up negotiations on issues such as electricity, border crossings, health services and economic agents. The agreement must have been negotiated in place by mediators from Egypt and the UN.

It is only a few weeks since there was a sharp escalation of the conflict. The terrorists from Gaza fired about 700 rockets and grenades at southern Israel. Four Israelis were killed in the attacks. The Israeli military responded by hitting more than 300 targets linked to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, including several rocket launchers. 25 Palestinians were killed in the fighting, most of them members of terrorist groups
