Not much "truciness" to this truce

When is a ceasefire not a ceasefire? When people get shot in head while the ceasefire is "in effect." Can somebody at Reuters explain this to reporter Nidal al-Mughrabi?

GAZA (Reuters) - Gunmen shot dead a Hamas commander in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday and the Islamist group blamed a Fatah-dominated security service for the first killing in the territory since a ceasefire went into effect overnight.

Hospital officials in the southern town of Khan Younis said Hussein Shabasi was shot in the head.

That seems to happen quite a bit during Palestinian ceasefires. This double-speak would be laughable were it not for the western media's complicity in spreading it.
