Hamas Rejects Truce Israel Isn’t Offering
Today Israel is continuing to pound Hamas targets from the air, and massing troops on the Gaza border for a ground assault; Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak has declared this a “war to the bitter end.”
Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouk, hiding in Damascus, says “No truce for Israel.”
A senior exiled Hamas official has rejected any talk of a new truce with Israel unless all attacks on Gaza cease and the border crossings are reopened.
Moussa Abu Marzouk has told The Associated Press in an interview in Damascus that Palestinian gunmen have a right to strike everywhere in Israel in response to the assault on Gaza.
