CBNNews.com - One day after the demise of Hamas Interior Minister Said Siam, Hamas vowed to continue its attacks against Israel.
This comes in spite of an Israeli cabinet decision to consent to a unilateral cease-fire.
Osama Hamdan, a Hamas leader based in Beirut, insisted that the cease-fire was designed to get Palestinians to make concessions "which the enemy failed to achieve through the fighting."
"If we don't hear what we want," Hamdan said, "we'll return to the fighting arena."
"Don't suggest that we surrender because we haven't been defeated and won't be defeated," he added. "Our determination grows stronger every day, because our debt to the shahids whose blood has been spilled is bigger. We shall continue fighting, so don't suggest that we surrender."
Meanwhile, Palestinians fired 10 rockets into southern Israel Saturday from the Gaza Strip, hitting a synagogue near Netivot. The building, temporarily free of worshippers, sustained serious damage. No one was hurt.
