Hamas Declares the Current Ceasefire is 'Last Chance for Talks'


A senior Hamas leader declared ahead of the end of the current 72-hour ceasefire, which will come at midnight on Wednesday, that the current lull in fighting is the last chance for Israel to negotiate with his terrorist organization.

Ismail Radwan, the Hamas leader, warned Wednesday "these three days are the last opportunity as far as we are concerned," reports Channel 10. "If there won't be advancement towards the demands of the Palestinian people, I anticipate the delegation will leave Cairo," added Radwan, referencing the ongoing truce talks being intermediated by Egypt.
