Qatar says Israeli truce terms sent to Hamas, doubts Netanyahu cabinet can coalesce around it

Qatar’s foreign ministry spokesperson says Doha delivered an Israeli ceasefire proposal to Hamas that reflects the positions stated by US President Joe Biden, but has yet to receive “concrete approvals” from either side, though the distance between them appears to have shrunk.

Majed Al-Ansari stresses that there should be a clear position from both parties, with some members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet threatening to bolt the government over the proposal.

“We are waiting for a clear Israeli position that represents the entire government in response to the US’s Gaza proposal,” Al-Ansari says at a press briefing.

“We have already seen statements coming from Israeli ministers which doesn’t give us a lot of confidence of there being a unified position in Israel over this current proposal on the table,” he adds, according to Al Jazeera. “We can see also that there is a positive momentum building up on both sides.”
