Israel denies Hamas assertion that Netanyahu asked for truce
Reuters, Monday 19 Nov 2012


Israel denied on Monday Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal's assertion that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanuyahu has requested a truce in the Gaza conflict.

"Hamas's comments about a ceasefire, alleging that Israel is begging for one, are about as accurate as its claims to have shot down an F-15 (warplane) or attacked the Knesset," a senior government official said.
