Hamas and Palestinian Factions Respond Positively to Truce Proposal #

Hamas and Palestinian factions have responded positively and seriously to an Israeli truce proposal, paving the way for a potential agreement. Hamas accused Israeli media of incitement and attempting to sidestep agreement obligations. Talks for a ceasefire and hostage deal in Gaza face uncertainty after Israel characterized Hamas’ response to the proposal as a rejection. Hamas submitted its response to Qatari mediators, proposing amendments that include a timeline for a permanent ceasefire and complete Israeli withdrawal. Talks are ongoing, facilitated by Qatar, Egypt, and the US. A recent UN Security Council vote approved a US-backed resolution for a ceasefire and a plan to end the war.
