The Latest

Aug 29, 2014

Fighting between Israel and Hamas entered its seventh week. On Tuesday, the fiftieth day of the conflict, Israel and the Palestinian factions agreed to an Egyptian brokered open-ended ceasefire. IPF issued a statement of support and remains guarded in our optimism that the halt to the fighting will be sustained. On Wednesday, Al-Qaida's Syria wing, Al-Nusra Front, and other Islamist fighters took control of the Syrian side of the Israeli-Syrian border. On Thursday, a senior Palestinian official commented that the Palestinians would take Israel to the International Criminal Court unless the UN Security Council imposes a timeline for Israeli withdrawal from the occupied Palestinian Territory. Many in Israel continue to have mixed feelings about the accomplishments of Operation Protective Edge, and with an end to fighting, the attention is now focused on the political and diplomatic outcomes of the operation.
