Hamas says studies ceasefire proposal in Gaza

Hamas said on Wednesday it was prepared to study proposals for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip that would require Israel to halt attacks and lift "entirely" its blockade of the Gaza Strip.

"Once we receive a proposal, we will study it," said Hamas official Ayman Taha. "We are for any initiative that will bring an immediate cessation to the aggression and lift the siege entirely."

Taha made the comments after Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said current conditions were not right for a Gaza ceasefire. Olmert did not rule one out in the future.
