JERUSALEM (Worthy News)– A five-day ceasefire in Gaza which ended last night was extended by another 24 hours, at Egypt's request.
Hamas confirmed the extension, but blamed Israeli "obstinacy" in the grueling negotiations and said that no progress has been made in talks
"The negotiations have faced difficulties because of the occupation's obstinacy, and the 24-hour (extension) came as a result of a request by the mediators to have another chance," senior Hamas official Izzat al-Rishq wrote on Twitter, later telling Al-Jazeera that there has been no progress on an agreement in the Egypt-mediated indirect talks.
"Both sides have agreed to a 24-hour ceasefire," the official with the Palestinian delegation in Cairo said. — Source
