According to the No. 2 of Hamas’ political branch in Gaza, Khalil al-Hayya, the proposal includes three phases, each lasting 42 days, and includes a complete Israeli withdrawal from the territory, the return of the displaced and an exchange hostages held in Gaza and Palestinian prisoners held by Israel, with the aim of “permanent ceasefire”.
