Talks Monday Despite Hamas’s Jerusalem Attack

Despite the attack by a Hamas terrorist in Jerusalem on Wednesday that murdered a three-month-old baby and wounded eight others, indirect negotiations between the terror group and Israel apparently are to restart next Monday.


The revelation was made Thursday by a leader of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group, which along with Hamas waged war on Israel during the 50-day Operation Protective Edge that ended in an August 26 ceasefire, and which along with Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA) is taking part in the Cairo truce talks.


The Islamic Jihad terrorist Khalid al-Batsh told the Palestinian Arab Ma’an News Agency that the Egyptian intermediaries had sent invitations to both sides of the talks, calling on them to return to the Nile state on Monday.


The invitation added that the talks will focus on expanding the six-nautical mile fishing limit on Gaza meant to prevent weapons smuggling and naval attacks, a limitation Gazan fisherman have been systematically breaching in a sort of “marine intifada.”
