A Hamas spokesman said Tuesday night that that at this point, no decision had been taken within Hamas whether or not to maintain their commitment to a period of calm. In an interview with the al-Arabiya network, he added that Hamas was obligated to defend the Palestinian people against all attackers, Israel Radio reported. In another announcement Tuesday, the al-Aksa Martyrs' Brigades threatened to renew attacks against Israel. One leader said that the targeted assassination of al-Aksa leader Hassan Madhoun put an end to the newly-minted agreement arrived at with the PA about stopping Kassam attacks on Israel around the period of the holiday of Eid al-Fitr.
