Hamas rejects Egyptian proposal for Gaza ceasefire

The armed wing of Hamas rejects Egyptian proposals for a ceasefire in Gaza, threatening to “intensify” its conflict with Israel if truce terms are unsatisfactory.

“No official or unofficial side has approached us about the ceasefire talked about in the media… (but) if the contents of this proposal are true, it is a surrender and we reject it outright,” the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades says in a statement.

“Our battle with the enemy will intensify.”
