Hamas chief in Cairo boasts of ‘victory for resistance’

Amid reports of a ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza Strip, senior Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouk announces that the negotiations between the two sides are almost at an end and that an announcement will soon be made of a ceasefire and an “end to Israeli hostilities.”

Haaretz quotes Abu Marzouk, who is the deputy of Hamas’s Gaza chief, Ismail Haniyeh, as saying that the agreement constitutes a “victory” for the resistance movement and rewards the resilience of the Palestinian people.

Abu Marzouk speaks in Cairo, where the negotiations were taking place. Haaretz reports that Abu Marzouk returned to the Egyptian capital this morning after meeting Hamas political leaders, including political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal, in the Qatari capital.
