Hamas denies Arabic media reports that a long-term ceasefire deal has been reached between Israel and Gaza-based terror groups, including a prisoner exchange between the two sides.

“Spreading such rumors will not succeed in putting pressure on the leadership of the resistance,” senior Hamas official Zaher Jabareen says in a statement.

A delegation of senior Hamas officials, including Hamas terror chief Ismail Haniyeh, arrived in Cairo this morning, for talks with Egyptian intelligence.
