A senior Hamas official, Ahmed Yusuf, told a United Arab Emirates television station over the weekend that the Palestinian Islamist group will soon make an announcement on a long-term ceasefire with Israel.

The talks on an Israeli-Hamas tahadiya (the Arabic term for "truce") "have come a long way, and soon we will be able to announce something about the issue," Yusuf is quoted as saying.
