A ceasefire between Israel and Palestine expires

Friday, December 19, 2008

A six month ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza has expired and late on Thursday Hamas announced it would not be extending the truce. The Hamas spokesman, Fawzi Barhoum, says the Palestinian people don't feel they have anything to gain by keeping the ceasefire in place. In recent weeks, there has already been an upsurge in violence. Katya Adler, a BBC Correspondent in the Middle East, joins The Takeaway to discuss this troubling turn of events.
