Armed Islamist factions in Gaza put their men on alert today after ending a six-month truce with Israel and warned the Jewish state not to attack. But apart from the rhetoric, calm prevailed.
Some of Gaza's 1.5 million Palestinian residents, who rely on supplies via illicit tunnels from Egypt as long as Israel keeps borders closed, feel the truce was a swindle anyway, but there is an uneasy peace in the area.
So what happens now? Both sides need to justify their next steps to their own supporters but is there a next step that will keep both sides happy? Is there any way of making progress?
