      Hamas: No Talks with Israel

      Hamas has denied reports that it is conducting indirect talks with Israel for the opening of the Rafiah crossing to Gaza.

      “We can confirm that there are no negotiations, direct or indirect, with the occupation,” a Hamas spokesman said. He added, “The only thing that happened after the ceasefire mediated by Egypt was that a delegation from Gaza met with the Egyptian side to begin the terms of the ceasefire.”
