A senior Hamas official says US President Joe Biden’s proposed Gaza ceasefire deal is “just words” and the terror group has not received any written commitments related to a truce.

Osama Hamdan, a Hamas official based in Beirut, tells AFP: “There is no proposal — they are just words said by Biden in a speech.”

“So far, the Americans have not presented anything documented or written that commits them to what Biden said in his speech,” he says.

Hamdan says Biden “tried to cover up the Israeli rejection” of a deal Hamas said it agreed to in May, which would have left the terror group in power in the Strip and seen few of the hostages released in exchange for hundreds of imprisoned terrorists.
