Hamas spokesperson Moussa Abu Marzouk says that the current truce with Israel in the Gaza Strip is the second and final one, suggesting that the current Israeli effort to extend the truce by three more days may be unsuccessful — whether it’s because a breakthrough in the ceasefire talks is imminent or not remains unclear.
“We’re standing before a difficult negotiation,” he says. “The first truce passed without an acceptable achievement to note. This is the second and final truce. The seriousness right now is clear. What’s necessary is for the delegation to achieve what the Palestinian people wishes of it.”
