Israel, Hamas reach new truce outline

Hamas will reportedly cease terror, in return for expanded fishing zone, continued fuel supply and added electricity.

London-based newspaper Al-Hayat has reported that Israel and Hamas have reached “understandings” through the mediation of an Egyptian delegation, regarding the easing of the blockade of Gaza.

The Egyptians reportedly told Hamas it must cease terror activity.

In return, Israel agreed to expand Gaza’s fishing zone, continue to supply Gaza with fuel and augment its supply of electricity.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said two weeks ago that the terror group is still working with Egypt and the UN in order to reach a possible ceasefire arrangement.

“We are working with a number of parties, including Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations, to reach understandings in order to break the blockade,” Haniyeh said in a video message to an Islamic conference in Istanbul, Turkey.
