Hamas has been holding talks with the Islamic Jihad over the weekend in an effort to convince the terror organization to stop firing rockets into Israel and resume the de facto truce that has been in place for two years, Egyptian daily Al-Ahram reported on Sunday.

According to the report, Hamas leaders from Damascus told Egyptian officials that the group is not interested in an escalation with Israel at the moment, saying it does not believe it is in the interest of the Palestinians.
