Hamas is interested in a long-term ceasefire with Israel and has discussed such an option with other terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip, a Saudi newspaper reported Friday. According to the unconfirmed report in Al Jazira, Hamas recently held intensive discussions with the leaders of Islamic Jihad as well as other groups, and asked them to halt Kassam attacks against Israel as a first step in reaching a truce with Israel. The factions were wary of the offer, saying it would be pointless to negotiate with Israel without receiving any guarantees that it would stop its military activity in the strip.
