War in Gaza: Hamas expected in Cairo on Saturday for talks

CIA Director William Burns arrived in Cairo on Friday for a new round of talks on the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, as the Palestinian movement told Reuters it would send a delegation to the capital on Saturday Egyptian.

Hostages. Egypt, alongside Qatar and the United States, has undertaken mediation between the two parties to negotiate a ceasefire agreement associated with the release of Israeli hostages still held in the Palestinian enclave. The CIA declined any comment on this new trip by William Burns to Cairo. Hamas said Friday it was heading to the Egyptian capital with a positive mindset. “We are determined to find an agreement that meets the demands of the Palestinians,” the Islamist group said in a statement.

The compromise which was discussed last week in Cairo, and which was validated by Israel, provides for an agreement on the release of fewer than 40 hostages in exchange for Palestinian prisoners held by Israel, according to sources close to the negotiations. Secondly, the truce should result in a “period of lasting calm”, a compromise formula defined by Israel in response to Hamas’ request for a permanent ceasefire.

In this context, Israel would grant freedom of movement between the north and south of the Gaza Strip and initiate a partial withdrawal of its troops. The mediators are still awaiting Hamas’ response to this proposal, deemed “extraordinarily generous” by the head of American diplomacy, Antony Blinken.
