BBC is carrying a report (which seems more likely by the hour) that they have received a communique affirming Hamas’ commitment to breaking the ceasefire.

“Israel has said it is in favour of renewing the truce.

Israeli officials insist they never made a commitment to do so…

"No mediator has approached us to extend the ceasefire so based on this... [after 19 December] we will respond to any Israeli aggression," the communique said.


Still a few hours left…
