Hamas studies 7-day truce proposal in Gaza

GAZA, July 25 (Xinhua) -- The Islamic Hamas movement said on Friday that it's studying a seven-day ceasefire initiative for the ongoing conflict in the Gaza Strip, which was proposed by Egypt, the United Nations, the Arab League and the United States.

The remarks came after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon earlier in Egypt called for a humanitarian truce for the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas to honor the Muslim holiday that marks the end of the Ramadan fasting month.

Regional and international efforts to end the bitter fighting between Israel and Palestinian factions in Gaza have been going on unabated, but all endeavors have not yielded any results so far.

Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip, which started on July 8, has so far killed 864 Palestinians, mostly civilians including women and children, and injured 5,730 others, according to the Hamas-run Heath Ministry. At least 35 Israelis have been killed by Hamas rocket attacks.
