Hamas has proposed a tahadiyeh (Arabic for 'temporary truce'), with Israel, which, according to the group, would hold throughout 2007. According to Israel Radio, Hamas was preconditioning the tahadiyeh on Israeli cessation of all military operations in the West Bank, in addition to Gaza, and on the removal of all road blocks, checkpoints and border passages. In addition, Hamas demanded that Israel unfreeze Palestinian funds being withheld by Israel, as well as for Israel to create a framework for the release of prisoners.
