The Islamist group abandoned its demand for a permanent ceasefire with Israel.

Hamas has accepted a US offer to start negotiations for the release of Israeli prisoners, including soldiers and men, 16 days after the first phase of an agreement to end the war in Gaza. Reuters reported this on July 6, citing a source in the Islamist group.

It was noted that Hamas refused to demand that Israel commit to a permanent ceasefire before the agreement was signed.

A Palestinian official close to the international mediation team said the proposal could lead to a framework agreement if accepted by Israel.

A source in the Israeli negotiating team says there is now a real chance to reach an agreement. This is in stark contrast to previous Israeli statements that Hamas’ conditions are unacceptable.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office confirmed that talks would resume next week, but stressed that differences between the parties still remained.

The new proposal states that mediators will guarantee a temporary ceasefire, the delivery of aid and the withdrawal of Israeli troops during indirect negotiations on the implementation of the second phase of the agreement, a source said. Hamas

The conflict has claimed the lives of more than 38,000 Palestinians since Hamas attacked southern Israel on October 7, killing 1,200 people and taking about 250 hostages, according to Gaza health officials.

Netanyahu had earlier said the operation in the Gaza Strip would continue until Hamas was eliminated and “all other objectives of the war were achieved.”
