GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Hamas movement denied Monday that it had said it was interested in a long-term ceasefire agreement with Israel in the Gaza Strip.

Samu Abu Zuhri, the movement's spokesman, said that "some international parties presented a proposal to the movement but the movement did not give any responses as this subject should be handled through national consensus."

The Walla Hebrew-language website reported earlier that Hamas presented a 5-year ceasefire draft to European parties.
