Palestinian Official Says Cease Fire With Israel Extended

A Palestinian official says the truce with Israel will be extended for 5-days. So far, there’s been little progress reported in the negotiations in Egypt between the Israeli’s and Palestinians. Israeli officials say three rockers were launched from Gaza into southern Israel a couple of hours before the current three day ceasefire was scheduled to end. Hamas wants the blockade of Gaza, started in 2007 by Israel and Egypt to end. Israel says the blockade’s needed to stop arms smuggling. Israel also wants Hamas to disarm, or at least be prevented from re-arming.
