Osama Hamdan, a senior Hamas official in Lebanon, says no agreement has yet been reached to extend the temporary ceasefire in Gaza and that the terror group does not find Israel’s offer worth considering.

“Efforts to extend the truce have not yet matured, and as for the offer that has been made to us to extend the truce, we do not find it worthy to study,” Hamdan tells the Hezbollah-affiliated news outlet Al-Madayeen.

The truce, which was initially slated to end Monday before a two-day extension, is due to expire tomorrow morning if no agreement is reached to further extend it.
