Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant blames Hamas for breaching the truce agreement with Israel, he said in a news conference Saturday, APA reports citing CNN.

"Hamas explicitly violated the agreement we reached with the US, Egypt and Qatar," Gallant said.

The truce between Israel and Hamas collapsed after Hamas promised to return the remaining 15 women and two children but did not follow through, Gallant said.

Gallant also addressed Hamas' Wednesday claim that two young children — 4-year-old Ariel and 10-month-old Kfir Bibas — had been killed in an Israeli airstrike, stating only that they had been photographed alive earlier.

"Hamas promised to bring women and children; there have been 17 left behind. We need all 17, two kids of the Bibas family and 15 women," Gallant said.
"This is their obligation because we agreed on it," he said.
