7 Just before ceasing, Hamas fired more than 100 rockets at Israel, and Israel leveled 2 towers, including a missile builder's condo and Hamas' public works offices. Then Israel, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority implemented a "long-term" truce, allowing food and supplies into Gaza. Disarming Hamas and building air and sea ports await talks if the truce lasts a month. With more than 2,100 Gazans and 69 Israelis killed in 7 weeks, Hamas celebrated "victory."
