Update: 8:30 PM 11/20/2012
Reuters reports that palastinian officials in Cairo are now saying that there would be no ceasefire before Wednesday, as they await the Israeli cabinet approval of the ceasefire agreement.
Secretary of State Clinton's remarks during her visit to Israel also appear to imply that there would be no immediate ceasefire.
"In the days ahead, the United States will work with our partners here in Israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of Israel, improves conditions for the people of Gaza and moves toward a comprehensive peace for all people of the region," Clinton said.(1)
Update 11/21/2012 8:00 am
Haaretz is quoting Palestinian sources in Cairo saying a cease-fire will not be announced on Wednesday due to disagreement over the Gaza blockade. The source says that Israel refuses to include the lifting of the blockade in the truce agreement.
Post Clinton visit to the region, a ceasefire is finally agreed.
