Hamas rejects Egypt's ceasefire proposal
(07-15 11:13)

The armed wing of Hamas on Tuesday rejected Egyptian proposals for a ceasefire in Gaza, threatening to "intensify'' its conflict with Israel if truce terms were unsatisfactory.
"No official or unofficial side has approached us about the ceasefire talked about in the media... (but) if the contents of this proposal are true, it is a surrender and we reject it outright,'' the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement.
"Our battle with the enemy will intensify.'' --AFP
