Hamas signals it will likely reject US-backed Gaza cease-fire plan

“Hamas has signaled it will likely reject the latest cease-fire proposal backed by the US because it would not permanently halt the war in Gaza, security officials said. A day after the cease-fire talks resumed on Wednesday in Qatar, Hamas’ leadership continued to show no signs that they will agree to a compromise endorsed by President Biden last week, two Egyptian security sources told Reuters. Senior Hamas official Sami Abu Zuhri said Thursday that while the terror group welcomes ‘Biden’s ideas,’ the deal on the table is too similar to an Israeli proposal that Hamas had previously rejected.” (06/06/24)
