Truce Talks Resume Between Israel, Hamas in Cairo

An Egyptian security source confirmed the resumption of negotiations on a truce between Israel and Hamas in Cairo on Sunday. The Egyptian security source indicated that joint Egyptian-Qatari efforts are being made to achieve progress in the upcoming talks between Israel and Hamas.

Earlier this month, talks on the release of the hostages and a humanitarian truce were held in the Qatari capital, Doha.

On Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu allowed an Israeli negotiating delegation to travel to Qatar and Egypt in the coming days.

CNN reported, citing American officials, that the postponed talks between the United States and Israel regarding the possible ground operation in Rafah, south of Gaza, may be held on Monday in Washington.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled the talks scheduled for this week after the United States refused to block a United Nations resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza and the release of prisoners held by Hamas.

While it seemed that the indirect negotiations between Hamas and Israel to reach a truce had reached a dead end, Netanyahu’s office reported after a meeting with the heads of the Israeli intelligence services (Mossad) and internal security services (Shin Bet). He “agreed to a round of negotiations in the coming days in Doha and Cairo… to move forward.”

During recent months, several negotiations were held through international mediators Egypt, Qatar, and the United States, but without results, while Israel and Hamas exchanged accusations of obstructing them.
