Hamas Leader Khaled Meshaal looks on as he gives a press conference at the Journalist Syndicate building on November 19, 2012 in Cairo. Meshaal said his movement is committed to efforts to secure a truce with Israel, but insisted the Jewish state must lift its six-year blockade of the Gaza Strip. Nearly 100 people have been killed in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip since Israel began a massive air campaign aimed at halting rocket fire from the Palestinian enclave.
