Hamas Leader Won't Close Door On Humanitarian Truce

(Gaza) -- The leader of Hamas is leaving the door open for a possible humanitarian truce to halt the fighting in Gaza. Khaled Meshaal said Wednesday he wouldn't agree to a full ceasefire until the terms are negotiated. The announcement comes as Secretary of State John Kerry is in Israel working to broker a truce. Meanwhile, the UN's High Commissioner for Human Rights believes there's a strong possibility that both sides have committed war crimes. He cited indiscriminate attacks on civilians during the two-week long battle in Gaza.
