Israeli channel: Iran launched 100 drones and cruise missiles, some of which were already shot down

The Israeli foreign intelligence service Mossad, which is in charge of negotiations with Hamas, which is classified as a terrorist movement in the United States and other countries regarding the truce in the Gaza Strip, announced that the movement rejected the truce proposal presented by the mediators, according to what was reported by Reuters and Agence France-Presse.

On Sunday, the Mossad said in a statement distributed by the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Hamas had rejected the latest proposal to restore the Israeli hostages, adding that Israel would continue to achieve its goals in Gaza “with full force.”

The statement indicated that “the rejection of the proposal shows that Yahya Al-Sinwar, head of Hamas’s political bureau in the Gaza Strip, does not want an agreement and is trying to exploit the tensions with Iran and escalate the conflict at the regional level.”

On Saturday, Hamas announced that it had delivered to the Egyptian and Qatari mediators its response to a truce proposal with Israel in the Gaza Strip, stressing a permanent ceasefire.

In a statement, the movement stressed “adhering to its demands and the national demands of the people, which are represented by a permanent ceasefire, the army’s withdrawal from the entire Gaza Strip, the return of the displaced to their areas and places of residence, intensifying the entry of relief and aid, and beginning reconstruction.”

On the other hand, Israel rejects a permanent ceasefire and a complete withdrawal of its armed forces from Gaza, while Netanyahu announced his intention to carry out a ground operation in Rafah in the far south of the Strip, considering that the city constitutes the last major stronghold of Hamas.

On Saturday, Netanyahu announced that Hamas is “the only obstacle” to an agreement that “allows for the release of hostages,” stressing that the main point of contention is “the end of the war and the withdrawal of the Israeli army from the Gaza Strip,” two things that the movement demands.

“A new round of negotiations”.. Procrastination or a prelude to the “Gaza deal”?

After it seemed that the “indirect negotiations” between Israel and the Hamas movement, which is classified as a terrorist organization in the United States and other countries, with the aim of reaching a truce, had reached a “dead end”, the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was given the green light to hold new talks, so what is new about these talks? This time?.. Is the “Gaza deal” close to being implemented?.. and what might hinder that?

For weeks, Netanyahu has been threatening to launch a ground attack on Rafah near the Egyptian border to “eliminate” Hamas, raising fears for the fate of civilians, as the United Nations confirms that the city has become the last refuge for about 1.5 million people, most of whom were displaced from other areas in the Strip.

The war broke out in the Gaza Strip following the unprecedented Hamas attack on October 7, which killed 1,200 people, most of them civilians, including women and children, according to the Israeli authorities.

In response to the attack, Israel pledged to “eliminate the movement,” and has since carried out a bombing campaign followed by ground operations since October 27, killing 33,686 Palestinians, the majority of whom are women and children, and wounding 76,309, according to what the Hamas Ministry of Health announced on Saturday.
