Hamas representatives from its armed factions in Gaza called an urgent meeting on Saturday to discuss the escalation in violence along the border and the need to adhere to a cease-fire.

Spokesman for the military wing of Hamas, Abu Ovadia, explained that if Hamas does not respond to "Israeli attacks" then it would not have the right to exist. "However, occasionally we use tactics to determine the nature of the reaction, the place and time," he explained.
