Hamas Says It Will Not Police Truce with Israel

[ AP] Ibrahim Barzak - Hamas leader Khalil al-Haya said the group will not act to confront Palestinian militants who breach the truce with Israel, after Gaza militants fired three rockets into southern Israel Tuesday, lightly wounding two Israelis. Hamas said it was exerting pressure on Islamic Jihad, which claimed responsibility for the attack, to stop the rocket fire, but al-Haya said Hamas forces would not confront rocket launching squads on the ground. "Hamas is not going to be a police securing the border," he added. "No one will enjoy a happy moment seeing Hamas holding a rifle in the face of a resistance fighter."
