The move comes after Tel Aviv was struck by rockets fired from the Gaza Strip
Mr Barhum said that the two sparring factions made an agreement on Monday. The move comes after Tel Aviv was struck by rockets fired from the Gaza Strip. After this, Israel retaliated with its aircrafts battering targets through the Strip.
Local reports claim one of the buildings struck was the office of Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas’ political leader.
But according to Sputnik News, Mr Barhum said in a statement: “Egypt’s efforts to cease fire between the occupation forces and resistance factions have turned to be successful.”
Early on Monday, Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was forced to finish his trip to the White House after hearing of the attacks.
He vowed Israel would respond “forcefully”.
