Arutz Sheva reported The Prime Minister's Office announced late last night that PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas had informed Olmert that all the Palestinian terrorist factions had agreed to stop all hostile Gaza-based activities against Israel. These included, Abbas said, tunnel-digging, suicide bombers, and Kassam rockets. Israel agreed in return to remove all its forces from Gaza.
And Israel trusted them.All IDF forces were withdrawn from Gaza in the course of the night - and shortly afterwards, two terrorist groups announced they were not parties to the ceasefire agreement. Islamic Jihad and the Abu Rish Brigades of Fatah declared this morning that they would continue firing rockets at Israeli citizens.
Israel should show that it is honoring the agreement by withholding attacks on anyone except Islamic Jihad and Abu Rich Brigades, but they should do everything to destroy them.
