Senior Hamas leader Khalil al-Hayya said on Thursday that reaching an agreement with Israel that would secure a long-term cease-fire remains possible, after both sides agreed to give Egyptian-brokered talks more time to try to end the Gaza war.

"There is still a real opportunity to reach a deal, under one condition, that the Zionist forces stop playing with terminologies and hiding behind them in a ruse that renders our demands void," al-Hayya told reporters upon his return from negotiations in Cairo.
