Source: Palestinian official says Gaza armed groups will end round of fighting if Israel reciprocates

Following the most significant escalation on the southern border since Operation Protective Edge, a senior Palestinian official said that terror groups in Gaza are ready to negotiate a ceasefire; Joint command center in Gaza: ‘Factions of the resistance consider this round of escalation over as far as we are concerned.’

The official, at a joint command centre in Gaza, said the groups, in cross-border violence over the past two days, had been “responding to crimes” by Israel – a reference to the killing on Tuesday of two gunmen from the Hamas militant organisation.

“Factions of the resistance consider this round of escalation over as far as we are concerned, and the continuation of calm depends on the behaviour of the occupation,” the official said, using militant factions’ term for Israel.
