Gaza imam’s edict: Violating cease-fire would be a sin

Follow j. on   and 

A Muslim imam in Gaza has issued a religious edict, or fatwa, that says it is a sin to violate the cease-fire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

Suleiman al Daya issued the fatwa on Nov. 24, according to the newspaper Haaretz, after a top Hamas official said the terrorist organization would continue to stockpile arms although it was prohibited under the agreement brokered last week by Egypt.

“Honoring the truce, which was sponsored by our Egyptian brethren, is the duty of each and every one of us,” Daya said in his edict.

“Violating it shall constitute a sin.” — jta
