Israel denies Hamas assertion that Netanyahu asked for truce
JERUSALEM Nov 19 (Reuters) - Israel denied on Monday Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal's assertion that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanuyahu has requested a truce in the Gaza conflict.
"Hamas's comments about a ceasefire, alleging that Israel is begging for one, are about as accurate as its claims to have shot down an F-15 (warplane) or attacked the Knesset," a senior government official said.
