Hamas said a United Nations resolution, demanding a ceasefire in <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?><place w:st="on"><city w:st="on">Gaza, was not in the best interests of the Palestinian people.

The announcement came as British Prime Minister Gordon Brown admitted that there was hard work ahead to ensure a lasting settlement in the <place w:st="on">Middle East.

There was no lull in attacks by either Hamas or <country-region w:st="on">Israel</country-region> since the resolution was agreed upon in <state w:st="on"><place w:st="on">New York.

<country-region w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Israel</country-region>’s former UN ambassador Danny Gillerman said he expected hostilities for some time.

“What we are doing in <place w:st="on"><city w:st="on">Gaza is not a movie and it is not something where the director says cut sand everybody freezes."
