Hamas on Tuesday denied that rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel on Monday evening, and accused Israel of looking for excuses to shirk its commitment under the cease-fire agreement to ease its blockade of Gaza. "The closing of the border today is unjustified and another indication that the Israeli occupation is maneuvering and trying to dodge the conditions of the truce understanding," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said.
