‘Hamas wants to stop fighting, but with achievement’

Gershon Baskin, the founder of a joint Israeli-Palestinian policy group and a former liaison in previous indirect negotiations between Israel and Hamas, said on the Knesset Channel that Hamas wants to stop fighting, but not without some achievement.

Hamas’s demands have included the opening of a seaport and an airport, the opening of border crossings into Israel and Egypt, eased travel restrictions on Gazans, and the payment of the salaries of former Hamas government clerks.
