Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Tuesday said that Hamas has made "intensive contacts" in order to "stop Israeli aggression" on Palestinians in Gaza, Palestinian Ma'an News Agency reported.

On Sunday, an Egyptian brokered cease-fire went into effect between Israel and terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip in which Israel agreed to halt operations in the Strip, and Gazans agreed to stop firing rockets into Israeli territory.

Speaking in Gaza, Hanieyh decried what he called Israeli aggression towards and assassinations of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Haniyeh credited God, and "steadfastness of the Palestinian people," and the Egyptian government with helping to bring about the cease-fire.
