Hamas still inflexible, Israeli negotiators say

The Israeli delegation to Cairo, where Egypt is currently mediating a ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian factions, including Hamas, is already back in Egypt after shuttling to Israel overnight to update Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the latest developments in the talks, Channel 2 reports.

The delegation reportedly informs the prime minister that Hamas is inflexible, then returns to Cairo for more talks. It is said to have offered Hamas a ceasefire framework very similar to the one that was in place after Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012, but with a little more flexibility.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu cancels today’s security cabinet meeting amid a lack of new developments, and is now briefing party chiefs on the situation.
