Egypt offered Hamas to supply Gaza with electricity and ease up restrictions at the Rafah crossing Tuesday morning, according to Channel 10.

This offer is on condition that Hamas detain wanted suspects, tighten the security on their shared border, and discontinue weapons smuggling to Sinai.

Earlier this week,  Israel announced its decision to cut its electricity payment to Gaza by 40 percent, while the Palestinian Authority intends to pay only 60 percent of the bill.
