Shepard Smith reports that Hamas official Ezzat Al-Rishq has told Reuters that the Gaza truce has been held up because Israel has yet to respond to proposals. He also said we “must wait until tomorrow.”
Shep also reported that the Israeli ambassador now says that there is no ceasefire because Israel is looking for a lasting solution, not a temporary cessation of hostilities.
