Hamas ready for a ceasefire in Gaza   Leave a comment

In a major breakthrough, a top Hamas leader has said that it would “cooperate with efforts to achieve a ceasefire agreement” with Israel and to reopen the Gaza border.

“Hamas does not have the might to withstand Israel’s war machine and will cooperate with efforts to achieve a ceasefire agreement with Israel and to reopen the Gaza border crossings,” Ismail Haniyeh said in his message aired on Hamas television.

In his second taped message since Israel launched its offensive against Gaza, Haniyeh declared that Hamas was determined to continue fighting against Israel.

“Gaza will not break, our victory over the enemies is near,” he said in a fiery speech.

“When we watch over you, residents of Gaza, we draw patience and will power from you,” the deposed Prime Minister who led his faction to a massive electoral victory in the January 2006 Palestinian Legislative Council elections said.
