Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmad announced Tuesday morning that the Palestinian delegation still does not know whether or not it will agree to a long-term cease-fire and put the blame on Israel for the delay.

"It won't be possible to know until tomorrow if we agreed or not," he said.

"There are 24 hours to work on this and everything that's been written so far isn't correct. I repeat, everything that's been published so far is not based in reality," al-Ahmad continued. "There hasn't been any advancement on any point. Israel's maneuvers prevented an agreement."
