The Egyptian-brokered cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas does not call for stopping the flow of weapons into the Gaza Strip, a top Hamas leader announced Saturday.
Ezat Risheq, member of the Hamas "political bureau," said that reports claiming that the agreement calls for an end to the smuggling of weapons were untrue.
Risheq was commenting on reports that claimed that special US army units would be deployed along the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt to stop the flow of weapons to Hamas and other armed Palestinian groups.
The Hamas official claimed that Israel was behind the reports "to cover up for its defeat."
In a related development, Ziad Nakhalah, deputy head of Islamic Jihad, told the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper that the cease-fire agreement was "temporary and partial."

I guess they had to sign the cease fire to find out what was in it.
Any bets on how many days it will be until Hamas starts firing a large number of rockets into Israel?
Israel: Ending bombing not part of truce...
Thanks Former Fetus.
You, you mean that this is not really Middle East peace in our time? And they were just starting to polish a Nobel Peace Prize for Hillary...
This is just a hunda for rearming purposes. PERIOD.
Sec. of State Hitlery and Prez Bronco 'Bama built that!!!
Nobody else made that happen.....
The purpose of a “truce” is to re-arm, re-supply, and to reorganize and re-position forces. Didn’t everyone know this?
starts firing a number of large rockets into Israel?
That's more like it since Iran has seen fit to provide these animals with long range artillery rockets to replace the junk they fiddle-futzed together out of scrap yard parts. Israel should undertake to caulk up all of the rat holes leading into Gaza. Ground penetrating radar should make finding them easy, then just run back and forth with a tank until it caves in, rinse and repeat (I think we used to do something like that in 'Nam, called it "jigging" or something like that.
