Hamas: Truce should be protected

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri criticised the attack, accusing "parties in Ramallah" -- the West Bank town where Abbas's government is based -- of ordering the strike to help Israel maintain its blockade of the territory.

Abu Zuhri vowed that local authorities would take all actions necessary to protect the national consensus on the truce, and said the group behind the attack bore full responsibility, along with Israel, for the siege.

"The factions and the people accepted the truce in order to realise their interests, first in halting the Israeli aggression and second in lifting the siege. So we want everyone to respect this agreement," he said.

Palestinians and UN officials have meanwhile said Israeli soldiers fired shots across the border several times over the past week, wounding a farmer and another man.
