The talks on reaching a truce in the Gaza Strip resumed with the participation of all parties in the Egyptian capital city of Cairo, Al-Qahera Al-Ekhbariya broadcaster reported on Wednesday, citing a source.

“Truce talks have resumed today in Cairo in the presence of all parties,” the source said.

On Monday, Israel started a military operation in eastern Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip and took control of the Gaza side of the Rafah crossing with Egypt.

Later the same day, Hamas informed Qatari and Egyptian mediators that it agreed to the terms of the ceasefire deal they had drafted.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the terms unacceptable and on Tuesday, the Hamas delegation returned for negotiations in Cairo.

On Oct. 7, 2023, Palestinian movement Hamas launched a large-scale rocket attack against Israel and breached the border, attacking both civilian neighborhoods and military bases.

Nearly 1,200 people in Israel were killed and some 240 others abducted during the attack.

Israel launched retaliatory strikes, ordered a complete blockade of Gaza, and started a ground incursion into the Palestinian enclave with the declared goal of eliminating Hamas fighters and rescuing the hostages.

More than 34,800 people have been killed so far by Israeli strikes in the Gaza Strip, according to local authorities.

More than 100 hostages are still believed to be held by Hamas in Gaza. (Sputnik/NAN)
