Here’s what you need to know about the Hamas-Israel truce

3 min read

For the first time since the Gaza war started 47 days ago, Israel and Hamas have reached an agreement regarding Gaza’s future.

In a four-day truce, mediated by Qatar, the sides have reached an agreement that ensures the release of Israeli captives as well as Palestinian prisoners and the resume of humanitarian convoys after a four-day ceasefire has been reached.

As Israel’s deadly military strikes on Gaza continue, how can this deal lead to a change in the realities on the ground as a consequence of these strikes?

This deal only provides a short-term respite from the violence, and it remains to be seen whether the Israeli government will use the ceasefire as an opportunity to negotiate a lasting ceasefire or resume its attacks.

Moreover, even if a lasting ceasefire is reached, it does not address the underlying issues in Gaza, such as the lack of access to resources, poverty, and unemployment. Therefore, there is still a long way to go before the situation in Gaza is resolved.

In addition, it remains to be seen whether Hamas will adhere to the terms of the ceasefire, or whether it will use the lull in its attacks to launch attacks against Israel.

This uncertainty only adds to the complexity of the situation in Gaza, and it remains uncertain as to whether a lasting ceasefire will be achieved.

Additionally, Israel continues to blockade Gaza, making it difficult for aid to reach those in need. It also restricts the movement of many Palestinians, making it difficult for them to access basic necessities. This further complicates the situation, and makes it even more difficult to bring about a lasting ceasefire.

Israel’s actions have caused immense suffering for the Palestinians in Gaza, and it is essential that the international community take action to bring a lasting resolution to the situation.
