‘Hamas fighters are ready to return to battle’

A spokesman for Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, warns of renewed fighting with Israel if talks in Cairo to extend a 72-truce in Gaza collapses.

“We appeal to the Palestinian delegation to not accept a ceasefire, unless it satisfies the demands of our people,” a spokesman using the nom-de-guerre Abu Obeida says in a televised address, adding that Hamas fighters are “ready to return to battle.”
