Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday the militant Palestinian group Hamas had violated its own offer of a 24-hour humanitarian truce in Gaza.

Asked whether Israel would accept the truce offer, Netanyahu told CNN: "Hamas doesn't even accept its own ceasefire, it's continuing to fire at us as we speak."

Netanyahu added that Israel "will take what ever action is necessary to protect our people."
