Hamas reported on Friday (10) that its delegation had left Egypt, after participating in negotiations on the ceasefire agreement in the Gaza Strip, and stressed that the decision now rests with Israel.

He added, “The negotiating delegation left Cairo heading to Doha. The occupation [Israel] We rejected the proposal made by the mediators, which we accepted. Hamas said in a letter sent to other Palestinian factions: “As a result, the ball is now entirely in the occupation’s court.”

The Egyptian Cairo News Agency, which is close to the Egyptian intelligence service, reported that two delegations from Hamas and Israel left Cairo after two days of negotiations. Al-Arba confirmed, quoting a high-ranking Egyptian source, that the efforts of Egypt, Qatar and the United States as mediators in these indirect negotiations “are continuing in order to bring the positions of the two parties closer together.”

The proposal presented by the mediators, which, according to the movement’s representative, stipulates a truce in three stages, each lasting 42 days, which includes Israel’s withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and the exchange of hostages kidnapped by Hamas for Palestinian prisoners in Israel in order to reach a “permanent ceasefire.”

Israel responded that the proposal was far from its demands, and reiterated its opposition to a permanent ceasefire until it achieves complete victory over Hamas, which it classifies, like the United States and the European Union, as terrorists.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office said that Egypt and Qatar's proposal was “far from Israel's basic demands” but that it would still send negotiators to Cairo to continue talks on a ceasefire agreement.
