Hamas’s terms for truce with Israel

Hamas’s conditions for a ceasefire call for a ten-year truce, and the release of the prisoners originally freed during the 2011 prisoner swap for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit and rearrested after the June 12 killing of three Israeli teenagers, Channel 2 reports.

In addition, the terror organization demands that all crossings to the Gaza Strip be opened, and that the Rafah crossing to Egypt be secured by UN forces. It calls for an airport to be established in the Strip, that fishing areas be expanded, and that Israeli aircraft alter their flight routes such that none fly over the coastal enclave.
