Israeli delegation leaves Doha, blames Hamas for 'dead end' in truce talks

Israel has recalled its negotiators from Doha, deeming the Gaza truce talks "at a dead end" because of Hamas's demands, according to a senior Israeli official.

The official, who is close to the Mossad spymaster heading up the talks, accused Hamas's Gaza leader, Yahya Sinwar, of sabotaging the diplomacy "as part of a wider effort to inflame this war over Ramadan".
