The Truce which has room for violations

And just because it is not widely reported in the international press - do not presume the kassams are not falling. The Jerusalem Post:
A Kassam rocket fired from northern Gaza landed in the Sha'ar Hanegev regional council on Saturday evening, causing no injuries or damage. The rocket triggered the Red Alert air raid system throughout Gaza-border communities.

The incident continues a pattern of erratic cross-border shelling and rocket launches since the cease-fire was declared in June. The last such attack took place on Wednesday when a rocket fired from Gaza landed in southern Israel.

While I concede the violations are sporadic, the fact remains there will always be these groups. As you will never get nearly enough people on board for any truce a peaceful resolution to this conflict is a damned near impossible situation to achieve.
