GAZA - Hamas announced on Wednesday it was ready to stop the latest round of cross-border violence as long as Israel followed suit, in a statement issued after IAF strikes killed two Palestinians in the Gaza Strip in a third day of fighting.

"Responding to the Egyptian efforts, we and the armed resistance announce our commitment to stop this round of confrontation as long as the occupation stops this aggression," said a written statement from Hamas's armed wing.

Israel had no immediate comment.
