Israel, Hamas dig in as Gaza talks go on in Cairo
An Israeli Cabinet minister says Israel will respond if Hamas resumes fire after a temporary three-day truce expires in the Gaza Strip.

 

The statement, along with Hamas' earlier threats, signals that both sides are digging in their positions as negotiations continue in Cairo on a lasting truce and reconstruction for the war-battered coastal territory.

 

Minister Gilad Erdan told Israel Radio on Thursday that if Hamas renews hostilities, the military will "resume operations."
