As the current truce between Gaza and Israel is set to expire Monday at midnight, it appears that any long-term cease-fire is as unachievable as ever, and while the artillery strikes may be temporarily on hold, the hell on the ground continues.Not only does the lack of any tangible progress in Cairo seem to indicate that military action is likely to resume, whether sooner or later, as the roots of the conflict have not been addressed, but it leaves the 1.8 million Gazans susceptible to a slow death.
