Palestinian sources, referring to the mediators from the Egyptian Muhabharata, disseminated information that Israel rejected the terms of the cease-fire proposed by him with Gaza.

At the same time, Israel allegedly put forward an ultimatum – if before 16:00 on August 9 rocket attacks from Gaza do not stop, a large-scale military operation against Hamas will begin.

Hamas, meanwhile, warned that if the Israeli attacks did not stop in Gaza, the radius of rocket attacks would be widened.

A correspondent for Arabic affairs of the 10th channel of Israeli TV Zvi Yekhezkeli commented on what was happening:

In the end, there is a “responsible adult” – either Egypt or Israel.

The logic of Hamas is very simple. He needs a limited conflict. In a limited conflict, he will always be the one who will say the last word – and create a “new level of containment.” And what else can they think of us when we began to blow up skyscrapers in Gaza only on the 48th day of Operation “Indestructible Rock”? Our attacks are so stereotyped that it always ends with this kind of “new equation of force.”

Egypt, for its part, is ruthless – unlike us. In Egypt, Hamas is defined as a terrorist organization, in Egypt they can not stand. But if you demolish Hamas, Gaza falls on them – and they absolutely do not need it. All they want is silence in Gaza, so that the situation in Sinai does not heat up.
