Hamas urges US to pressure Israel, claims no indication Jerusalem agrees to truce deal

Palestinian terror group Hamas claims it has shown “full positivity” in efforts to reach a ceasefire agreement with Israel in the Gaza Strip conflict.

In a statement, Hamas says it urges the US to direct its pressure against Israel to accept a deal leading to a permanent ceasefire in the enclave.

Hamas says that while US officials have said Israel has accepted a ceasefire proposal outlined by US President Joe Biden on May 31, “we have not heard any Israeli official confirm this acceptance.”

Hamas rejected the proposal, waiting two weeks to submit a list of amendments, some of which Washington has said are “not workable.” The Biden administration has been putting extensive pressure on the terror group, questioning whether it is negotiating in good faith.
