Egypt Brokers Fragile Truce between Palestinian Factions and Israel in Gaza

It is worth mentioning that, under the Oslo Peace Agreement, signed between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1993, the fishing zone was set at twenty nautical miles, where the Palestinians are supposed to be able to fish and sail, but Israel kept violating the agreement.

Israel chose to tighten the blockade on Gaza as a kind of punishment, closing the Kerem Shalom crossing and reducing fishing areas before declaring that the flaming kites were included in ceasefire.

A total of 14,811 Palestinians also sustained injuries, of whom 366 are reportedly in a critical condition.

"The Israeli army is prepared and ready for any mission we give it", Lieberman said during a visit to the border area Tuesday.

The announcement came two weeks after US President Donald Trump had complained about the lack of "appreciation or respect" from Palestinians who receiving aid. The army knows what to do, how to do it and when to do it.

Israel says it has no interest is engaging in another war with Hamas, but says it will no longer tolerate the Gaza militant campaign of flying incendiary kites and balloons across the border that have ignited fires damaging Israeli farms and nature reserves.

Lately, Israel was criticized by a United Nations human rights body for its killing of protesters in Gaza and treatment of Palestinians, declaring it a "war crime" under the Statute of Rome. "The activity we are engaged in now sends a message that Israel will not tolerate rockets, explosive devices, mortar bombs or (incendiary) kites", Katz said on Israel's Channel 12 TV.

"Yesterday we were on the brink of war, and it has taken the concerted efforts of everyone to make sure that we step back from confrontation", Mladenov said in Gaza.

Jamal al-Fadi, a political science professor in Gaza, agreed that Hamas could stop the firebombs, but said it wants to use them to pressure Israel to ease its blockade. The blockade has caused widespread economic hardship. The two countries say the blockade is for self-defence. It went on to assert that Israeli forces had deliberately killed minors with the use of live ammunition.

Beyond the kites and last weekend's exchange of fire, mass protests and clashes along the Gaza border since March 30 have seen dozens of Palestinians shot dead by Israeli soldiers.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday reiterated that Israel would not tolerate the continued kite and balloon arson attacks that have burned thousands of dunams of forests and agricultural land adjacent to the Gaza border in recent months, including fresh fires started on Sunday.
