Israel accepted a Gaza ceasefire plan that will start with a preliminary 72-hour truce beginning tomorrow morning. Israeli officials will work out further details of the ceasefire over the next few days in Egypt. As of Aug. 1, at least 2,909 rockets had been fired at Israel from Gaza and 66 Israelis had been killed. In the first fatal attack in Jerusalem in three years, a Palestinian construction worker drove an earthmover into a bus, flipping it over and killing one Israeli and wounding five more. President Netanyahu's spokesman said Israel's military campaign to destroy the Gaza tunnels is coming to a close, but that the overall operation will not cease until Israel experiences an extended period of quiet and security.
Of the 54 rockets launched by Gaza militants into Israel today, some targeting Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, five were intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system. Israel continued its assault on the Gaza militants' tunnels, rockets, and other infrastructure in the 22-day-old conflict, in which 56 Israelis and 1,200 Palestinians have been killed. Israel has indicated willingness to enter a ceasefire under certain conditions.
