News Item - Hamas seeks truce talks with Israel

Officials with the Hamas-led government in the Gaza Strip have appealed for a cease-fire with Israel ahead of a possible truce.

Hamas, and Gaza, were not included in the recent Annapolis talks between Israel and the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whose Fatah government controls the West Bank portion of the Palestinian Territories. In the past Israel has refused negotiations with Hamas unless the organization refutes terrorism and acknowledges Israel's right to exist.
