GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Abu Ubaida, the spokesman of the Hamas-affiliated al-Qassam Brigades, said in a televised address Thursday night that the military wing had given the political leadership "the opportunity to negotiate to stop Israel from hurting our people."

He insisted that there would be no ceasefire unless Israel agreed to end the siege, however.
