Hamas MP: Group ready to fight if Israel violates ceasefire

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas said Wednesday that it was prepared to fight back if Israel did not commit to the ceasefire agreement signed in August.

"The resistance is ready to fight for months and cause Israel huge losses," Hamas MP Ismail al-Ashqar said.

The ceasefire agreement stipulated that Israel would immediately expand the fishing zone off Gaza's coast, allowing fishermen to sail as far as six nautical miles from shore, and would continue to expand the area gradually.

Under the terms of the deal, Israel also agreed to ease its siege on the coastal enclave. more
