GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories: The armed wing of Hamas declared an end Wednesday to its participation in Egyptian-brokered efforts for a durable ceasefire with Israel, as violence escalated after the collapse of a 24-hour truce.

"We are calling on the Palestinian delegation to withdraw immediately from Cairo and not to return," said a spokesman for the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades in comments broadcast on the movement's Al-Aqsa TV channel.
