Palestinian rescue workers search for victims as people gather atop the remains of a house, which witnesses said was destroyed in an Israeli air strike, in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip July 29, 2014. Jerusalem - PLO official Yasser Abd Rabbo on Tuesday said all Palestinian factions were prepared to announce a unilateral 72-hour cease-fire in fighting between Israeli and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

According to Rabbo, the announcement was made with the consent of Hamas.

Speaking at a press conference in Ramallah, Rabbo said the initiative for a three-day halt in fighting was based on a proposal by the UN’s special envoy to the Middle East, Robert Serry.

However, Hamas spokespersons have denied these reports and said they do not agree with this announcement and that a cease-fire cannot exist when Israeli forces are inside Gaza.

Israel did not immediately respond to the remarks.

Unlike Israel, these savages don't care a whit about offending any country, about public opinion, or about digging in their heels and fighting for their own (twisted) cause. They're not even worried about appearing obstinate for not agreeing to the ceasefires. Something Israel might take a lesson from.
