Russia has urged the radical Palestinian movement Hamas to reverse
Russia has urged the radical Palestinian movement Hamas to reverse its decision to end its ceasefire with Israel, declared on June 19, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Friday.

Earlier on Friday, Hamas announced an end to the Egyptian-brokered truce in the Gaza Strip, blaming Israel for failure to meet its conditions - to ease the blockade of the Palestinian enclave controlled by Hamas and halt attacks.

"We believe it is essential for Hamas to reconsider its decision to end the truce," Andrei Nesterenko said. "The decision could lead to new victims and suffering among the civilian population."

"With rockets exploding and fire being returned, it is not possible to hold effective talks and move toward a political settlement aimed at ensuring the Palestinians' right to an independent state and the security of all nations in the region," Nesterenko said.

Nesterenko also urged Israel to end the blockade of Gaza, which could lead to "catastrophic humanitarian consequences for civilians."
