Hamas claims that Arabs have the first right on Palestine not the Jews. Thus, Hamas does not assume Israel as country and want Palestine back so that Arab Islamic people can go back to their old homes. With this aim, Hamas says it will use every weapon possible. Since World War II, loss to lives and property from both the sides is marked. And conflict is still not resolved. Israel controls the borders of Gaza and keeps a check on who enters Gaza. Israel monitors every border activity of Gaza. Who enters and who exits is known to Israel. Thousands of 1948, 1967 war refugees live in Gaza strip and other neighbouring parts of the west bank.
Recently after the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens, 20 people were killed in Gaza as Israel rockets attacked the area. Israel blamed terrorist organization Hamas for the killing of teens and decided to attack Gaza.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked Israeli military to "take their gloves off," and Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said that Israel is "preparing for a battle against Hamas, which will not end within a few days." Ceasefire of 2012 was broken just because three teenagers were killed. Rockets after rockets and bombs after bombs both Israel and Hamas have left more than 2000 Palestinians and 63 people from Israel dead.
the rivals are following the 3 day ceasefire dear. Today being the
second day of ceasefire Egyptian mediator and negotiator will hold
negotiation in Cairo, where major delegations will try and find out
the middle path. After a month of killing and bloodshed in Gaza and
Israel, this meeting in Cairo can bring peace at last. Hopefully!
