Hamas official: 'No major issues' with Gaza truce proposal

A senior Hamas official told AFP on Sunday that the Palestinian militant group had "no major issues" with the latest proposal from Israel and Egypt for a Gaza ceasefire.

"The atmosphere is positive unless there are new Israeli obstacles. There are no major issues in the observations and inquiries submitted by Hamas regarding the contents" of the proposal, said a Hamas official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.  

A Hamas delegation led by the movement's senior leader, Khalil al-Hayya, would deliver the group's response to the truce proposal during a meeting with Egyptian and Qatari mediators in Cairo on Monday, the official said.
