Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas said Friday that Palestinian factions had agreed to halt their rocket fire on Israel and called on Israel to reciprocate by agreeing to halt its offensives in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The Palestinian proposal, which states that the Palestinian terror groups will halt their violence should Israel stop its military operations, was rejected by the Israelis, who called it "ludicrous."
