After few days of the truce expire and following the crucial retaliation between Israel and Palestinian brigades in Gaza that was witnessed, Hamas accepted an Egyptian proposal to halt the launch of projectiles at Israeli targets for 24 hours, said party spokesperson Ayman Taha Monday evening. Sources in Gaza sent conflicting reports, some saying the decision to call the ceasefire was made late Sunday night, and others claiming it did not go into effect until five o'clock Monday evening. Monday afternoon reports of Palestinian projectiles launched at the Israeli Kissufim Military base in the southern Gaza Strip as well as Israeli airstrikes on Palestinian targets east of Gaza city put early announcements of the 24-hour truce in doubt. An Islamic Jihad leader said that he approved the 24-hour ceasefire for the sake of Gaza and people's lives.

Pakistan education system
Our education system is in urgent need of reformation. The examination is all about cramming text and this does not allow a student to learn. It results in incompetent graduates who can neither become a good teacher nor a good leader. Due to this many Pakistani students are running away abroad to foreign countries spending millions of rupees on studies. We need to overhaul our education system and only then can our country make any progress.

We must act now, before the massacres continue! Over 200 people were killed in Gaza on Saturday, December 27 in a series of Israeli attacks - with US-made and paid for weaponry - upon the Palestinian people. These cold-blooded killings come on top of a siege on Gaza that has killed hundreds by depriving them of medical care, deprived Gazans of electricity, power and fuel and attempted to strangle the life of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
The people of Gaza are standing steadfast in the face of these massacres but our voices must be heard to demand an immediate end to the massacres and an end to US aid to Israel! The Israeli military is promising more massacres - we must say no NOW!
