The Islamic Jihad did not receive any official request from Hamas to stop firing rockets into Israel, or avoid attacking the Gaza Strip's crossings, Hajel Habib, a high-ranking official from the group was reported by Israel Radio as saying. On Thursday, it was reported that the Hamas government urged Gaza terrorists not to attack border crossings with Israel in order to ensure the flow of basic goods into Gaza during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. "The government calls on the Palestinian factions to avoid shelling the crossing points, in the interest of our people, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, and to keep commercial traffic going and protect security and stability in Gaza," a statement said.
