A number of prominent Hamas members commented on ongoing ceasefire attempts and renewed fighting in Gaza.
Azit a-Rashik, a member of Hamas' political leadership who is part of the Palestinian delegation, said "as of now, we have yet to receive a response from Israel regarding even one of our demands. Israel is leading us astray and wasting our time."
Mussa Abu Marzook, Hamas' top man in Egypt, said that as of Friday afternoon "there is no commitment to a ceasefire. We will protect our people with everything we have."
A Hamas source in Gaza said upcoming hours would see "surprises" in the form of "attack deep in the heart of Israel."
