" The offensive ended after Egypt brokered a ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas."
Gaza, Dec 7 - Hamas movement Sunday rejected the Israeli decision to investigate the last large-scale military offensive waged on the Gaza Strip in July.

Hamas' spokesman in Gaza, Fawzi Barhoum said that forming an Israeli investigation committee to probe the last Israeli war on Gaza aims at hiding the truth and the facts, Xinhua reported.

Forming an Israeli investigation committee is to prevent the international community's probing committees, mainly the UN, from unveiling the truth and the facts of committing war crimes, Barhoum said.

From July 8, Israel waged a 50-day large-scale military air and ground offensive on the Gaza Strip, killing at least 2,150 Palestinians and injuring 11,000 others.

It left tens of thousands displaced.

The offensive ended after Egypt brokered a ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas.

However, the indirect talks that Egypt brokered to reinforce the ceasefire have not been finalised yet.
