Report: Hamas Official Says Truce Is Being Held Up Because Israel Has Yet to Respond

UPDATE, 4p ET: Fox News' Jerusalem Bureau confirms that new explosions have been heard resounding throughout the Gaza strip, the first heard within the last hour or so. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to meet and hold a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shortly. Stay tuned for video and highlights.


Shepard Smith reports that Hamas official Ezzat Al-Rishq has told Reuters that the Gaza truce has been held up because Israel has yet to respond to proposals. He also said we “must wait until tomorrow.”

Shep also reported that the Israeli ambassador now says that there is no ceasefire because Israel is looking for a lasting solution, not a temporary cessation of hostilities.
