Netanyahu: "Hamas has violated its own ceasefire"

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said, in an interview with NBC, that "Hamas has violated its own ceasefire".

He also said that the "reason we have civilians killed... is because Hamas is using civilians as human shields".

A 24-hour ceasefire announced by Hamas in Gaza appears to be stalling, with both Palestinian militants and Israel continuing their offensives.

More than 1,060 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and 43 Israeli soldiers and two Israeli civilians have been killed.
