Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that he is willing to intensify the country's military campaign against the Islamic militant group Hamas in the Gaza Strip after a proposed cease-fire aimed at ending the week-long conflict was approved by Israel's Security Cabinet, but rejected by Hamas minutes later.

"If Hamas rejects the Egyptian proposal and the rocket fire from Gaza does not cease, and that appears to be the case, we are prepared to continue and intensify our operation," Netanyahu said in a statement.
