Hamas declares Israel truce over

The Islamist militant group Hamas says it has ended its six-month ceasefire with Israel in the Gaza Strip.

As the ceasefire expired at 0400 GMT, Hamas issued a statement blaming Israel which had not "respected" the truce.

Israel's foreign ministry spokesman said the militants, who control Gaza, "had chosen violence over truth".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But it was Israel that broke the truce November 5th with a raid into Gaza.
