Hamas denies report of ceasefire

Dec. 29, 2011 7:02 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 31, 2011 6:31 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas on Thursday denied an Israeli media report that the party's leader ordered the group's armed wing to cease attacks on Israel.

Citing senior Fatah sources, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported Thursday that Khalid Mashaal had instructed Hamas militants not to fire at Israel, after reconciliation talks with Fatah leader and President Mahmoud Abbas in Cairo.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum told Ma'an the report was "worthless" and did not merit a response.

He said the article reflected Israel's confusion in the face of Hamas' success.
