An Israeli official tells CNN that there is “no way” Israel will accept Hamas’s proposal for a ceasefire.

The Hamas demands include a four-and-a-half-month ceasefire and an eventual end to the war, as well as the release of hundreds of terrorists from Israeli prisons.

The terror group also stipulated that it wants a complete withdrawal of Israeli forces from the Gaza Strip, which Israel has said it is not prepared to do.
