 GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories: A Hamas official denied a ceasefire deal with Israel has been reached, rejecting claims from an Israeli official that they had agreed to halt fire early Friday.

“The news about a ceasefire is incorrect. There are continuing efforts but no agreement until now,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told AFP on Thursday.

The denial came after an Israeli official who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity said the Jewish state had agreed a ceasefire with Hamas that would begin at 0300 GMT on Friday.
