Hamas: Israel rejects ceasefire proposed by Red Cross

July 20, 2014 12:29 P.M. (Updated: July 21, 2014 6:41 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel on Sunday rejected a 3-hour humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza proposed by the International Committee of the Red Cross, a Hamas spokesman said Sunday.

Sami Abu Zuhri said officials of the Red Cross contacted Hamas and suggested to broker a 3-hour ceasefire to enable ambulances to evacuated injured people and dead bodies.

Hamas agreed to the proposal, but the Israelis refused it, said Abu Zuhri. He highlighted that Israeli forces prevented ambulance services from doing their work.

“The Israeli occupation is committing a war crime in the full sense of the word in Gaza City and trying to conceal the crime from the world,” he charged.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the allegation.
