Cease Fire Vote

Israel's leaders voted late on Saturday to halt an offensive that has killed nearly 1,200 people turned the streets and neighborhoods of the Gaza strip into battlegrounds and dealt a stinging blow to the Islamic militants of Hamas.

In announcing the unilateral cease-fire, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in a televised address that Israel had achieved its goals, and more.

Not long before Olmert spoke, a rocket hit the southern Israeli town of Ashdod, according to Israeli rescue teams.

No one was hurt in the attack.
Paramedics and firefighters were at the scene shortly after.
