Israeli Ceasefire Violations in Gaza and World Silence

On 21 November 2012, Israel and Hamas came to a ceasefire agreement to end the 14 day attacks that had killed many and injured hundreds of innocent civilians starting 14 November.The terms of the latest agreement include ending all hostilities by Israelis and Palestinians, and facilitating the freedom of movement and transfer of goods within Gaza.
