Who says Palestinians aren't...

Thoughtful and courteous?
The latest ceasefire was called to allow pupils to take final school exams.

Militants pulled back from flashpoint junctions on Monday although shooting still punctuated the morning.

Matriculation exams are expected to go ahead for tens of thousands of 12th grade students, although many reportedly had to take long detours to avoid gunmen still on the streets.
Of course, there is the occasional lapse...
Just before midnight, a Hamas activist was thrown off the 12th floor of a building, security officials said.

The ceasefire continues...
In all, 12 Palestinians were killed Monday, including three shot dead in Beit Hanoun Hospital in northern Gaza. At Gaza's largest hospital, Shifa in Gaza City, combatants fired mortars, grenades and assault rifles.
One small correction here... regarding previous reports of a man tossed off a 12th floor building...
The battles came a day after two men were thrown to their deaths from high-rise rooftops, signalling a rapid descent into all-out confrontation.
As always, Allah is in the details.
