Secretary General of the PLO Executive Committee Yasser Abed Rabbo said in Ramallah on the West Bank that all the Palestinian groups, including HAMAS, are ready to declare a three-day humanitarian truce. He said he was doing this statement “with the consent of HAMAS.”
HAMAS spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri immediately made a statement that the words of Rabbo “do not reflect the reality and have nothing to do with the resistance position.” “We will study the issue only when we see that Israel undertakes to observe the truce with international guarantees,” he said.”
Despite the HAMAS representatives’ statements, the PLO Executive Committee head said a special delegation was formed of the main Palestinian players that will soon go to Cairo to discuss the issue of a ceasefire in the enclave. According to some reports, head of the HAMAS Political Bureau Khaled Mashaal may be included in the delegation.
More than 100 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza in the past day. Since the beginning of Israeli army’s Protective Edge operation on July 8, more than 1,150 people have been killed and 7,000 injured in Gaza.
