Hamas on Thursday ordered its security commanders to enforce a cease-fire with Israel and beefed up its forces near the border to help maintain the calm.

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh issued the order following a surge in violence between Palestinian terrorists and the IDF in recent weeks.

Hamas has largely respected an informal cease-fire since Operation Cast Lead, however other terrorist organizations have carried out sporadic attacks.
