GAZA (Reuters) - The leader of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas held out the possibility of a Gaza ceasefire on Tuesday but said Israel should first halt its attacks.

“Should the Occupation (Israel) stop its aggression a return to the ceasefire understandings will be possible,” Ismail Haniyeh said in a statement.
