Gaza ceasefire: Israeli pledges to withdraw troops from Gaza, Hamas to keep rockets – Debka

Debka has not been useful during the Gaza conflict, just a propoganda machine for the war. Surprise suprise. In the Georgia conflict it was the first to warn of a Russian backlash against Israel. And actually in this conflict the first to warn of Israel losing Turkey.

But now it says Israel is going to withdraw, and agree to Hamas’ terms. Unless the intention is to lull an enemy into a false sense of security: Hizbollah, Iran, then I see no reason to doubt its truth.

I can’t imagine Israel returning back to the way it was. Pretending the fiasco will go away. Maybe there will be a surprise in the elections.

Gaza ceasefire: Israeli pledges to withdraw troops from Gaza, Hamas to keep shooting rockets

January 16, 2009, 10:34 PM (GMT+02:00)

DEBKAfile’s sources reveal the outline of an evolving ceasefire accord, dismissed as farcical by a furious Israeli military command: Israel has promised the US and Egypt to start pulling its troops out of the Gaza Strip within days and, at some point, open the six border crossings. Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert, defense minister Ehud Barak and foreign minister Tzipi Livni, the group running the Gaza war, have approved this arrangement and will put it before the security cabinet Saturday night, Jan. 17.

Israel is therefore submitting to Hamas’ two main demands, while ending its three-week military operation without achieving its two primary goals: Hamas vows to keep on firing missiles until the last Israel soldier quits the Gaza Strip and neither of the memoranda Israel signed with the US and Egypt Friday, Jan. 16, guarantees to halt the flow of smuggled weapons into Gaza.

Next week, Hamas plans to grandstand its armed forces’ restored control over the Gaza Strip.
