Hamas Seeks Ceasefire with Israel


Hamas officials said Saturday that Gaza militants had agreed to halt their rocket fire at the Negev if Israel stops launching strikes against targets in the coastal territory.

Hamas spokesman Ismail Rudwan said after a meeting with faction heads over a surge in attacks against Israel that militants were "committed as long as the occupation (Israel) was committed" to restore a de-facto ceasefire.
