BBC: Hamas 'ready for Gaza ceasefire' if Israeli raids stop

Hamas has offered to halt its rocket attacks if Israel stops its air raids on the Gaza Strip, the BBC understands.

A source with the Palestinian militant group said Egyptian intelligence officials had brokered a potential ceasefire. Israel has not commented.

The Israeli army says four rockets were fired from Gaza on Friday. No injuries were reported.

There is high tension in East Jerusalem ahead of the planned funeral of a murdered Palestinian teenager.
