Hamas denies contacts with Israel on a ceasefire

Mousa Abu Marzouk, a member of Hamas’ political bureau and a senior member of the organization, on Saturday denied that there are any contacts mediated by Qatar and other international factors on a long-term ceasefire with Israel.

The Arabi21 newspaper quoted Abu Marzuk as saying that an Israeli report on this issue was “false and has no basis.” The negotiations previously conducted by Qatar were meant to reach a temporary ceasefire in order to avoid escalation between the sides, he said.
