Islamic Jihad’s senior representative, Ziad al-Nakhaleh, announced on Tuesday, while in Cairo for cease-fire talks that the issue of disarming the Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip would not be discussed during the indirect talks with Israel. “This issue is non-negotiable,” he stressed.

He too emphasized that the Palestinian delegation would not make any concessions on its demands, first and foremost the lifting of the siege on the Gaza Strip.
