The US says there is already an agreement with Israel for the “basic lines” of a truce in Gaza

The United States, Israel, Egypt and Qatar have already reached an agreement on “the basic lines” to facilitate a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and the exchange of Israeli hostages for Palestinian prisoners, the White House said this Sunday.

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said this Sunday in an interview on CNN that the final agreement is still in the process of negotiation and indicated that Qatar and Egypt, main mediators in the Gaza war, plan to maintain ” indirect discussions” with the Palestinian group Hamas.

“The work is underway. And we hope that in the next few days, we can get to a point where there is a firm and definitive agreement on this issue, but we will have to wait and see,” Sullivan said.

According to Egyptian state television Al Qahera News, very close to Egyptian Intelligence, delegations from Egypt, Qatar, the United States, Israel and Hamas resumed their negotiations in Doha this Sunday.

Just on Saturday, Israel’s war cabinet gave approval to send a delegation to Qatar to negotiate indirectly with Hamas.

These talks in Doha come after the round of consultations held on Friday and Saturday in Paris between Israel, the US, Egypt and Qatar to define the terms of a new agreement.

According to Israeli media, the new draft contemplates a six-week truce and the release of some 40 hostages in exchange for the release of between 200 and 300 Palestinian prisoners.

Since the war began, Israel and Hamas only reached a one-week truce agreement in late November, which allowed the release of 105 hostages in exchange for 240 Palestinian prisoners.

More than 29,600 Gazans have died and more than 69,700 have been injured in more than four months of war in the Strip, which began on October 7, 2023 following a brutal attack by the armed wing of Hamas on Israeli soil, which left 1,200 dead and 250 kidnapped. With EFE
