Israel, Hamas resume hostilities after truce bid

Abu Zuhri, a senior Hamas official, said the proposal meant to bring eight days of Israeli airstrikes and Hamas rocket fire to a halt was not acceptable in part because Cairo did not consult it on the terms of deal. The military wing of Hamas, Izzedine al-Qassam, said in a statement on the Hamas website that the proposal "does not deserve the ink it was written with" and likened any such move to "surrender."
