Israeli official denies Al-Jareeza report of Hamas ceasefire

An Israeli official is denying the report on Al-Jazeera that claims an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire agreement was reached between Israel and Hamas, and went into effect earlier tonight.

One official tells Hadashot news that no agreement with Hamas had been reached, and that while the group earlier indicated it was interested in a ceasefire, he says the security cabinet has instead instructed the military to continue to use force against Gaza terror groups.
