Khalil al-Hayya, a deputy to Hamas’s Gaza leader Yahya Sinwar, tells Al Jazeera, “On the first day of the first phase of the agreement, there is a clear commitment to temporarily stop military operations.”

He says the second phase provides for the announcement of “a permanent cessation of military and hostile operations.”

He further says that Egypt is a guarantor of the deal and will not allow the war to return.

He also says the mediators informed Hamas that President Biden is committed to ensuring the implementation of the agreement.

According to a Haaretz report, Hamas sources claim to have received assurances from the US and Qatar, as well as Egypt, that Israel will not resume the war after the three-stage deal is implemented.
