Hamas rejects Egypt's proposed ceasefire in Gaza as 'surrender'

GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories (AFP) - The armed wing of Hamas on Tuesday rejected an Egyptian proposal for a ceasefire in Gaza, threatening to "intensify" its conflict with Israel if truce terms were unsatisfactory.

"No official or unofficial side has approached us about the ceasefire talked about in the media... (but) if the contents of this proposal are true, it is a surrender and we reject it outright," the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement.

"Our battle with the enemy will intensify."
