Mashaal: No Ceasefire Unless Our Demands Are Met


Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal told CNN on Sunday that he would support a temporary humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza, but would support a permanent ceasefire only if Israel changes its policy regarding the passage of goods and people into Gaza.

"A sustainable ceasefire is based on an agreement that is acceptable to both sides, ensuring our demands will be met, primarily the lifting of the siege on Gaza," Mashaal said.
