There seems to be a pattern here. Hamas does not want to sign any ceasefire and they are using every excuse in the book. The reason is quite simple: Hamas is benefiting from the war and they are gathering global support. The disgusting fact is that they want heavier casualties on Palestinian side in order to buy themselves more legitimacy and support. They are in a tight position if ceasefire is signed; Egypt is no longer their ally and they recognize the ugly nature of this murderous group. Egyptian public is supporting the government and it means that they will no longer receive weapons. So, they need a “port” to transfer their weaponry and secure their dictatorship. So, Hamas is not interested in ending the hostilities, rather they want to continue this war, so there will be heavier civilian death and they are going to do everything they can to get as many Palestinian killed as possible. They are already using every fraudulent and deceptive acts possible to show higher number of casualties. At the end, it is up to the Palestinians to stand up to this group. I do not see that happening anytime soon.
