Dr Harry Hagopian, the Bishops' Consultant on the Middle East

In today's Middle East Analysis podcast, Dr Harry Hagopian, the Bishops' consultant on the Middle East North African region, takes a close look at the eight-day conflict between Israel and Hamas that raged over the Israel/Gaza border.

Egypt was at the centre of a negotiated ceasefire - or hudna - that clearly and simply instructed both sides to stop all hostilities and called for crossings to be opened for the "movement of people and transfer of trade".

Egypt's foreign minister Mohamed Kamel Amr and US secretary of state Hillary Clinton announced the truce between Hamas and Israel that took effect on Wednesday 21 November 2012, 9pm Cairo time.
