Hamas Delegation Arrives In Cairo To Attend Final Ceasefire Negotiations

Sunday 3 March 2024 - 15:47

A negotiation team of the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, arrived in the Egyptian capital city Cairo for potential agreements to establish a ceasefire and prisoner swap with the Israeli regime.

Osama Hamdan, one of top officials of Hamas, said in an interview with Al-Arabiya news channel that the new round of negotiations will be held in Cairo today and tomorrow, and we hope for a desirable outcome for the Palestinian people.

Exact details of this round of negotiations have not been disclosed so far, but Arab media outlets speculate based on statements made by US officials that this round of negotiations is of great importance and there is a possibility of reaching an agreement in Cairo.

On Saturday, US media outlets, citing a senior official of President Joe Biden administration, claimed that the authorities of the Israeli regime have accepted the terms of a new proposed agreement, including a six-week ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, along with a prisoner swap and providing humanitarian aid to the Palestinians living in Gaza, and that they are waiting for a response from Hamas officials.

Previous rounds of ceasefire negotiations between the Israeli regime and Hamas, which were mediated by Egypt and the United States, did not reach a conclusion due to differences over the duration of the ceasefire and the number of prisoners who should be released.

Hamas demands a complete cessation of the war, a complete retreat of the Israeli regime’s army from the Gaza Strip, and the return of refugees to their homes in the besieged area, while the Israeli army considers these terms to be contrary to its objectives and the acceptance of their defeat in the face of Palestinian resistance.
