GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel on Sunday rejected a 3-hour humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza proposed by the International Committee of the Red Cross, a Hamas spokesman said Sunday.

Sami Abu Zuhri said officials of the Red Cross contacted Hamas and suggested to broker a 3-hour ceasefire to enable ambulances to evacuated injured people and dead bodies.

Hamas agreed to the proposal, but the Israelis refused it, said Abu Zuhri. He highlighted that Israeli forces prevented ambulance services from doing their work.

“The Israeli occupation is committing a war crime in the full sense of the word in Gaza City and trying to conceal the crime from the world,” he charged.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the allegation.

Why are the Hamas fighters not evacuating and dressing the wounds of their own civilians and fighters? Now Israel is setting up a field hospital to to tend for Gaza's wounded in Israel, asymmetrical warfare indeed.

Geneva's International Red Cross and her donors will be disgusted, that they are negotiating on behalf of terrorists, instead of bring them to the ICC for war crimes against Palestinian and Israeli civilians.

Cease fire yea, have a cease fire for Eid al-Fitr, which will be at the end of July. This is a day when Muslims around the world show a common goal of unity, something the world has yet to see since the inception of Mohammedanism.

HAMAS Militants use "ambulance services for doing their work", of TRANSPORTING ROCKETS, USING HUMAN-SHIELDS, AND COMMITTING WAR CRIMES USING AMBULANCES.

Wow! Not even the regular German Armed Forces refused Red Cross. Just the ardent fascist Nazi's. But of course Zionist Israel IS ARDENT FASCIST! And USG/UKG/EU has given Israel FULL,TOTAL,ABSOLUTIST IMMUNITY for 67 years of WAR CRIMES! So what did you expect(USG-shielded)Israel to do? Be respectful of human/universal rights,international laws/Conventions,compassion? Nein!That HUMANE ship sailed from Zionist-occupied Palestine in 1947 &has never returned,&never will !FOOLISH SCARED D.C.

Hamas did not refuse the peace treaty,insteed,they give 10 term that Israel should accept for cease fire or peace treaty,whatever thry call it. They never mean for peace,they want Palestinian Land and convert to Israel Land... Thats what they are doing for centuries... Shame on all of u who support Israel. If u are trying to hide the fact,than u a kufar, but if u r just misguided, by their propaganda, i ll pray and hope u will be guided... Seek the truth...
