Ceasefire talks underway in Cairo

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Negotiations in Cairo for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas have made progress, but a truce is unlikely in the coming days, PLO official Nabil Shaath said Sunday.

Hamas chief Khalid Mashaal and his deputy Mousa Abu Marzouq updated Shaath on talks in Cairo between Palestinian factions and an Israeli delegate.

Fatah leader and President Mahmoud Abbas is also in direct contact with Mashaal, Shaath said.

Shaath told Ma'an that a ceasefire "is not likely to take effect in the coming days because Israel is trying to impose its own stipulations ignoring the demands of Hamas and other Palestinian factions."


Possible good news from a neutral Palestinian journalist.

Sometimes it is darkest before the calm and not the storm.
