The Interior Ministry said in a statement that it had received a positive response to its efforts to stop the violence from escalating.

Hamas security sources said Friday that after its announcement, Israeli aircraft targeted smuggling tunnels in southern Gaza, an abandoned house east of Gaza City and a group of armed men in that area. No casualties were reported.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment.

On Thursday, an anti-tank missile fired from Gaza struck a school bus in southern Israel, wounding two people and prompting fierce Israeli retaliation that killed five Palestinians.

אַף-בְּלֵב, עוֹלֹת תִּפְעָלוּן: בָּאָרֶץ--חֲמַס יְדֵיכֶם, תְּפַלֵּסוּן
Yea, in heart you work wickedness; you weigh out in the earth the violence of your hands.

After you use an anti-tank missile on a school bus and Israel blows your training grounds away, now you want a cease-fire?!?! Since when do these towel-heads dictate terms?

Israel should continue bombarding Gaza until they release Gilad Shalit.

In history, barbarians and savages never "agreed" to a cease fire. They have never sworn off their thirst for blood. They have not ever considered mending their evil ways for a second. They are interested in protecting themselves from the firepower of IDF that is justly avenging the atrocities inflicted on Israel and its citizens. And the world will accept this as a "gesture of peace". Shame on all those who believe this drivel. Watch Obama Y"Sh, and the anti-Israel UN hear this as a first step of peace. No, you idiots. These savages are only saying we lob missiles, we can kill, maim, and terrorize, but we jump up and scream ceasefire when you're ready to shoot back. Shame on all those who give any merit to this way of thinking. These evil animals need to be blasted into the sea. We need to wipe out a sizable number of these terrorists, and then we will listen to the ceasefire stuff. There is no negotiating with them. Check history. Has talking with them ever worked?

Imagine if the school bus had been full?? They are targeting innocent children with the Itamar massacre and now this. A wire guided anti tank weapon is accurate and they meant to destroy young children. This was no random rocket. We are dealing here with the worst evil imaginable. One day, Israel will drop a nuclear bomb on them and that will be the end of them. It will turn Gaza into a radioactive wasteland for thousands of years. Unfortunately, that will happen only after more Holy Korbonos fall.
