There are a number of rumors going around in Arabic media about the outlines of a possible truce between Hamas and Israel, which is being furiously negotiated by Egypt.

Firas Press, quoting Maariv, says that in the short term, there will be a moratorium on the launch of incendiary balloons and kites, and Israel will fully open Kerem Shalom in exchange for a ceasefire. The second stage includes a prisoner exchange deal and the encouragement of international investments in Gaza.

Palestine Today  says that the deal will include Qatar's paying of electricity bills in Gaza in cooperation with Israel, Qatar's payment of salaries to Gaza employees in cooperation with Egypt, a one-year truce and a sea corridor between Gaza and Cyprus under full Israeli security control.

It would also involve opening the Rafah crossing to Egypt and talk about another sea corridor from Egypt's Port Said to Gaza (or perhaps a land corridor for that.)

I don't know if the US is involved in these negotiations in any capacity, but Mahmoud Abbas said that any talk about the US supporting humanitarian aid to Gaza is a lie.

I swear to God, they are liars,” he said of US officials who talk about helping Gaza.

Of course, Abbas is the main person opposed to any aid to Gaza to begin with.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
