Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri responded to IAF airstrikes in Gaza on Saturday night. "Israel has replied to the United Nations statement by killing 15 Palestinians. So Israel, by doing that, they have rejected the statement and we during this massacre confirmed that we will protect our Palestinian people and we will face the Israeli offensive. Fifteen martyrs killed in one moment."

The remarks come after the UN Security Council issued a short four-sentence statement, calling for a reinstitution of the November 2012 cease-fire put in place after Operation Pillar of Defense, and the resumption of peace negotiations toward a two-state solution.
