Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Friday called on the Egyptian government to reconsider or cancel the Camp David peace accords with Israel, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

During noon prayers, the Hamas prime minister also urged Egypt to reopen the Rafah crossing. The Egyptian government closed the crossing following the kidnapping of seven Egyptian soldiers in Sinai in the hopes it pressures the Hamas government to help bring the release of the soldiers.
