Hamas leader confirms rumors of indirect talks with Israel

Senior Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef said Sunday that indirect talks have been carried out between Israel and Hamas for the purpose of calming tensions in the area.
Speaking to Channel 1 on Sunday, he warned that the situation between Israel and Gaza could erupt once again if the Strip is not quickly rebuilt.
On Thursday Israeli authorities released on Thursday Yousef from Ofer Prison. As the West-Bank-based founder of Hamas, he had been on administrative detention since last summer.
