Hamas says it was not consulted on ceasefire

A Hamas spokesman tells CNN that the group did not reject the ceasefire, but was not informed of it.

“We did not receive this declared paper from the Egyptians … which means it’s an initiative for the media. It’s not a political initiative,” Osama Hamdan tells the station’s Wolf Blitzer.

“It’s not really an initiative. It’s not really an idea, what they are trying to do is to corner the Palestinians and to help the Israelis more.”

Earlier, the armed wing of the terror group rejected the offer, saying it also had not been approached by Egypt.
