Israel has withdrawn its troops from Gaza marking the start of a 72-hour cease-fire now in effect by Israel and Hamas. The truce, assuming it holds, will be followed by indirect talks between Israel and Hamas in Cairo aimed at creating a deal that would prevent future conflict between the two sides.

The following Wayne State University faculty members are available to offer expert opinion, tips and analysis in relation to the crisis:
