A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas is unlikely in the coming days, but negotiators made some progress, PLO official Nabil Shaath told Ma'an News Agency late Sunday night.

According to Ma'an, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is in direct contact with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal on the talks.

Shaath also said Hamas was prepared to resume unity negotiations with Abbas's Fatah faction once the military conflict with Israel ended.
