Senior Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouk commented on clashes between the IDF and Gaza terrorists, which began roughly two hours after a joint US and UN ceasfire came into effect.
"This is what we expected from an enemy that never stands by its commitments," he said.
"We are committed to ceasefire as long as the occupation (Israel) is committed," said the official who was supposed to take part in Cairo talks for a long-term ceasefire.
"We will not negotiate in Cairo about disarming. We will only talk about a ceasefire and lifting the blockade on Gaza."
