Hamas delegation to seek ceasefire in Cairo talks

At a press conference on Wednesday, senior Hamas official Osama Hamdan announced that a delegation led by high-ranking member Khalil al-Hayya will head to Cairo on Thursday to engage in ceasefire discussions with Egypt and Qatar.

The group submitted its feedback on the proposal, aiming for a lasting and complete ceasefire, the facilitation of food aid entry, and the removal of the blockade on Gaza.

This comes after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected Hamas's ceasefire proposal, to which Hamdan responded that Hamas is prepared to deal with all options.

"Netanyahu's remarks on the ceasefire proposal show he intends to pursue the conflict in the region," Hamdan said.

He also said that Hamas calls on all resistance Palestinian factions to continue confrontations.
