Israel taking seriously Hamas threat to resume fire

In a statement, the Hamas military wing threatens to resume rocket fire at 8 a.m. Friday if the blockade on Gaza isn’t lifted by then.

Israeli officials say Israel is poised to respond to any resumption of attacks, and is taking the Hamas threats seriously.

Nonetheless, Israel’s negotiators are heading back to talks in Cairo later Thursday with Israeli input that might enable an extension of the ceasefire, Channel 2 reports.
