Fatah: Hamas Suggested a Few Amendments to Egyptian Proposal

Senior Fatah member, Azzam al-Ahmad, told an Arabic-language news agency that during Abbas’ meeting on Wednesday with senior Hamas member Musa Abu Marzoq, Abu Marzoq expressed reservations regarding the Egyptian ceasefire proposal and raised suggestions for amendments.

The reports indicate that Abu Marzoq suggested the return to understandings reached after Operation Pillar of Defense: removing  the siege on Gaza, increasing the fishing zone to 12 miles and releasing 57 “Shalit Deal” prisoners rearrested during Operation Brother’s Keeper.
