Israel Leader Says Hamas Is Violating Its Own Cease-Fire Plan

July 27, 2014

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Hamas is violating its own cease-fire plan as it continues to fire rockets.

While Hamas militants who control the Gaza Strip agreed to resume a cease-fire, “they violated their own cease-fire” and are firing rockets “as we speak,” Netanyahu said in an interview taped today for CBS’s “Face the Nation” program.

Israel has accepted five cease-fire proposals, Netanyahu said. “Hamas has rejected every single one of them and violated every single one of them,” he said.
