This week began with the initiation of the second ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. On Monday, the United Nations Human Rights Council announced that they will open an investigation to all violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Israel replied by stating it will not cooperate with the commission and made arrangements to conduct its own investigation. On Wednesday night, amid uncertainty, the three day ceasefire was extended by an extra five days. Yesterday, tensions arose between Israel and the United States over reports that the US halted a military shipment to Israel. Today, the Egyptian paper, A-Shorouk, published what it reports are the eleven clauses of the Egyptian ceasefire deal.
