On the eve of the resumption of the cease-fire talks in Cairo, Hamas officials on Saturday said that Egypt’s latest proposals for a long-term truce with Israel were unacceptable.
Osama Hamdan, a senior Hamas representative in Lebanon, said that all the proposals presented to the Palestinians during the talks in Cairo do not meet their demands.
“Israel must accept the conditions of the Palestinian people or face a long war of attrition,” he said in speech before students in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.
He claimed that during the talks the Palestinian delegation faced attempts to “break its unity.”
Izzat al-Risheq, a Hamas member of the Palestinian delegation, announced that Egypt’s latest proposals concerning a long-term truce with Israel were “unacceptable to Palestinians.”
