Hamas official: We received assurances on Israeli policies in Jerusalem

Senior Hamas official Osama Hamdan tells Al-Mayadeen that the ceasefire will go into effect at 2 a.m.

“The resistance has forged a new equation and a new victory,” Hamdan says.

Hamdan says Hamas has received assurances regarding Israeli policy toward the Temple Mount, as well as Sheikh Jarrah, where dozens of Palestinian families face eviction in a property dispute with right-wing Jews in a court fight.

Israeli officials, speaking to Army Radio, deny any agreements have been reached with Hamas on the issues roiling Jerusalem, calling it “absurd and false.” The ceasefire is free of any conditions, an official emphasizes.
