Hamas reacts to proposed US ceasefire plan in Gaza

Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas have submitted their response to President Biden’s ceasefire proposal for the Gaza conflict to Qatari and Egyptian mediators. In a joint statement, they pledged to work towards an agreement that will put an end to the war. Their response prioritizes the interests of the Palestinian people and stresses the need for a complete halt to aggression against the Gaza Strip.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad have expressed their willingness to engage in efforts to reach an agreement that will end the war. However, anonymous sources suggest that Hamas made changes to the proposal, rejecting President Biden’s idea of releasing hostages as presented by him. The White House is currently reviewing Hamas’ response to the proposal.

The US, Egypt, and Qatar have been working for months to mediate an agreement between Israel and Hamas. President Biden’s three-stage plan for a ceasefire includes releasing Israeli hostages and eventually reconstructing the Gaza Strip. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has promoted this plan during a recent trip to the Middle East, receiving support from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Despite ongoing efforts, a lasting agreement has yet to be reached.
