Optimism from Palestinian delegation emerges

While Hamas continues to threaten a return to hostilities, Palestinian sources close to their delegation to talks in Cairo tell Maan news agency that there is a real chance that a long-term ceasefire between Hamas and Israel will be signed.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas is calling for Hamas political leader Khaled Mashaal to accept the terms proposed by Egypt, and senior PA official Saeb Erekat met with Mashaal in Qatar yesterday to urge him to agree to the truce.
