Dan Bongino: The Associated Press has reported that Islamic Jihad militant group spokesman Musab al-Berim announced a cease-fire with Israel. Gaza and Israel have been engaged in two days of heavy fighting and countless rocket attacks.
Fighting began after an Israeli airstrike targeted and killed a senior Islamic Jihad commander, Bahaa Abu el-Atta. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said el-Atta was the mastermind behind many attacks against Israel and was a “ticking bomb.” Islamic Jihad vowed revenge and within hours of their leader’s death, fired nearly 200 rockets at Israel. Islamic Jihad is supported by Iran and has vowed to destroy Israel. read more
