Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar revealed on Sunday that his movement’s recent decision to enforce a cease-fire with Israel came after Egypt warned that Israel was planning a military operation in the Gaza Strip.

Zahar said that Hamas received warnings also from other “international parties,” but did not elaborate.“Egypt and international parties warned Hamas that the Israeli occupation was planning to launch a new aggression against the Gaza Strip,” he said. “Hamas and the other resistance groups are prepared for such an aggression.”
