I am saddened Hamas has rejected an extension of the cease-fire.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri sent a text message to reporters Saturday, saying: "No agreement to extending the calm for an additional four hours." A short time afterward, the Israeli military said three rockets were fired from Gaza.

11:59 P.M. The Israeli security cabinet voted to ascend to the UN's request and to approve a humanitarian pause in fighting until midnight Sunday. During this period, the IDF will continue to neutralize Gaza tunnels and will respond to violations of the pause. The cabinet will meet tomorrow to discuss the next step in the military operation in Gaza. (Barak Ravid)

11:53 P.M. Rocket siren sounds in Be'er Sheva.


UPDATE: 2:30 Pacific time - On CNN just now a Hamas spokesman from Beirut has stated that Hamas is not yet ready to approve the extended cease-fire but he expected their response, when made, would be 'posititve'

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
