  1. Israel Announces Gaza Troop Withdrawal

    Truces may come and go, but Israeli soldiers have really left.

Israel has claimed victory in destroying the cross-border supply tunnels used by Hamas and has pulled its ground forces out of Gaza. Negotiations between the two sides — set to resume in Egypt — must now turn the three-day respite into a lasting peace.
