Israeli Official Says Truce Unlikely Soon
(Jerusalem) -- An Israeli cabinet minister says a Gaza truce is not likely in the next few days. The official also said today that Israel's army would continue destroying Palestinian cross-border tunnels even if a truce is declared. Egyptians who've been mediating talks between Israel and Hamas have indicated that hostilities between the two sides could be suspended next week to allow aid to reach the territory and facilitate more permanent peace talks.
