Hamas to end ceasefire

Amid spiralling violence that claimed 22 lives in two days, Palestinian Gaza Strip ruler Hamas on Saturday announced an end to the informal ceasefire with Israel. Hamas' military wing, Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that it is no longer committed to the Gaza region ceasefire with Israel.

“There is no longer a lull vis-a-vis Israel, in the face of the ongoing massacre that it commits against the Palestinian people without any justification,” said the armed faction's spokesman Abu Obeida in a statement.
