Israel dismissed on Friday a proposal by Hamas to call a conditional six-month truce in the Gaza Strip, calling it a ruse aimed at allowing the Palestinian Islamist group to recover from recent fighting.

"Hamas is biding time in order to rearm and regroup. There would be no need for Israel's defensive actions if Hamas would cease and desist from committing terrorist attacks on Israelis," David Baker, a spokesman from Israeli Prime Minister's Office, was quoted by local daily Ha'aretz as saying.

In apparent reference to Israeli air strikes and commando raids in Gaza, Baker added that "Israel will continue to act to protect its citizens."

Palestinian faction Hamas on Thursday agreed to a ceasefire with Israel in the Gaza Strip after talks with Egyptian mediators in Cairo, Egypt's official MENA news agency reported.
