It "sees the situation surrounding the Gaza Strip in a far different light, more like a situation holding the threat of a general conflagration beyond the confines of the Israel-Hamas contest in Gaza."
Without elaboration, Voice of Russia quoted Egypt's Masri al-Yaum newspaper saying:
"The aggression against Gaza will end today (Tuesday). With concessions and capitulations." A separate report said resistance groups reject Israeli truce terms.
They want conflict ended and not resumed. They want targeted killings stopped. They also want Israel's blockade lifted. No further information is available so far.
Russia wants Security Council action on Gaza. UN envoy Vitaly Churkin accused Washington of blocking UN action. America won't permit anti-Israeli statements or resolutions. It's longstanding policy.
Meanwhile, bombing and shelling continues. Maan News said another 21 Palestinians died Tuesday. Family homes are targeted. Children and passers by are killed.
Farmer Akram Marouf was on his land working. He posed no threat. A missile struck and killed him.
Gazan civil defense officials appealed to Arab neighbors for urgently needed supplies. Essential ones are being exhausted.
Maan's report said an Egyptian intelligence source said "there is still no breakthrough and Egypt is working to find middle ground."
A later report said both sides agreed to halt hostilities at 10PM GMT. Midnight local time.
Alleged terms include halting assassinations, stopping rocket fire, easing border crossings, and having Egypt act as ceasefire guarantor.
It remains to be seen what follows. Israeli guarantees aren't worth the paper they're written on. Don't expect this time to be different.
Netanyahu's comment revealed Israeli duplicity. He said "we will not hesitate to do what is necessary to defend our people."
In other words, Israel will enforce occupation harshness, continue targeted assassinations after agreeing not to, bomb and shell at will, accost fishermen at sea, kill farmers in their fields, shoot children for target practice, and maintain Gaza's siege.
What Gazans hoped for was lost. It's hard imagining what Gazans got in return for giving Israel what it wanted.
