Negotiations to continue – Hamas

Hamas will continue negotiating through mediators until they reach a ceasefire agreement with the Israelis.

“We are showing the required flexibility in order to reach a comprehensive cessation of aggression against our people, but the occupation is still evading the entitlements of this agreement,” the group said in a statement, Reuters reported.

Negotiators from Hamas, Qatar and Egypt – but not Israel – are in Cairo trying to secure a 40-day ceasefire in the war between Israel and the Islamist group in time for the fasting month of Ramadan, which begins early next week.

Hamas is insisting for a ceasefire to begin before they reciprocate with the handover of hostages.
