Source close to Hamas says terror group ‘willing to extend the truce’

Hamas is “willing to extend the truce” in fighting with Israel, a source close to the Palestinian terror group tells AFP hours before the latest extension is due to expire.

The seven-day pause has seen dozens of Israeli hostages exchanged for more than 200 Palestinian prisoners, and aid entering the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

“The mediators are currently making strong, intense and continuous efforts for an additional day in the truce and then working to extend it again for other days,” the source says on condition of anonymity.
