It seems that negotiations with Hamas are facing new problems

According to media reports, the indirect negotiations conducted by Israel with the extremist Islamic movement Hamas regarding a temporary ceasefire and the release of hostages are facing new difficulties.

Yesterday, the Axios news newspaper reported that Israel does not want to participate in a new round of talks mediated by Egypt, Qatar and the United States until Hamas provides a list of the names of the hostages who are still alive.

Many questions remain unanswered

Hamas has not yet responded to the number of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons, which the mediators suggested that Israel release in exchange for the release of a certain number of hostages.

The portal quoted an unnamed Israeli official as saying that all these questions remained unanswered even after three days of talks in the Qatari capital, Doha. The next round of negotiations is scheduled to be held in Cairo next week.

Restraint on both sides

But the Israeli source said that Israel will not participate as long as Hamas does not answer the outstanding questions. Hamas is still holding 134 hostages. According to Israeli estimates, about 100 of them are likely to be alive.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal, citing Egyptian sources, reported that Hamas froze its contacts with mediators due to the killing of more than 100 Palestinians in clashes over aid deliveries.
