Hamas has confirmed that it is studying a three-phase proposal for a truce in Gaza.
The Palestinian group’s political leader, Ismail Haniyeh, confirmed on Tuesday that he is studying the proposal to halt the war and enable the exchange of Israeli and Palestinian prisoners.
In a statement, Haniyeh said the group is, in his own words, “open to discussing any serious and practical initiatives or ideas, provided that they lead to a comprehensive cessation of aggression”.
Hamas also says that the plan must ensure the complete withdrawal of the occupation forces from the Gaza Strip.
The group’s leadership, he says, had received an invitation to Cairo to reach an “integrated vision” on the framework agreement.
