Moussa Abu Marzouk, deputy head of the Hamas political bureau, said the talks had returned to square one because of Israel’s position. Israel is insisting on full demilitarization of the enclave, which has been flatly rejected by all Palestinian factions. This is the main stumbling block and the principal condition for Israel’s agreement to discuss the lifting of the blockade on Gaza.
The Palestinians, however, have said they may refuse to extend the ceasefire. For its part, Israel is insisting that Egypt’s amendments should address its security concerns before political and economic issues can be discussed.
Abbas and al-Sisi may also discuss a donor conference on Gaza to be held in Egypt in early September.
