A member of the Palestinian delegation to Cairo said on Tuesday that the negotiating team now in the midst of cease-fire talks back by Egypt, will not waive any of its demands which have been presented during the first round of the Egyptian-mediated talks.

However, the source told the Alquds Newspaper, members of the delegation, including representatives from Hamas and the Islamic Jihad are willing to accept a gradual opening of the seaport and airport in Gaza.

That issue has proved to be the main stumbling blocks during talks, the source said. 

The delegation held a meeting yesterday that lasted more than ten hours, as the Egyptian mediators tried to bridge the gaps between the the Israelis and the Palestinians.
