Hamas will not hold its fire during the seven-hour halt that Israel declared will go into effect Monday morning in the Gaza Strip.

A spokesperson for the Islamist organization told the group's "Al-Aqsa" television network that the seven-hour cease-fire announced by the Israeli coordinator for government activities in the territories "was meant to divert world attention from the massacres committed by the occupation."
