Israel has agreed to a ceasefire with Hamas but the Gaza terror group has decided to continue its offensive.

A leader from Hamas’s armed wing has reportedly claimed that there would be no ceasefire until the group has been consulted on the “full terms” of a ceasefire agreement.

A ceasefire deal was brokered in Cairo between high-ranking Israeli and Palestinian officials.

Since the conflict began last Tuesday, more than 1,000 rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel causing several injuries.

According to Palestinian sources, more than 180 people in Gaza have been killed in Israeli airstrikes.
