Hamas slams 'Israeli foot-dragging' on Gaza truce issue

Hamas on Sunday slammed the "continued Israeli foot-dragging" on the Gaza truce issue, calling for a swift decision on the matter. "The enemy is the one that must decide on the nature of the next stage: calm and quiet, or war and conflict," Hamas legislator Mushir al-Masri said. Masri added that Hamas would take a final stance on the cease-fire after his representatives have heard Israel's position from the Egyptian mediators, Israel Radio reported.
