Hamas delegation visits Cairo to discuss Gaza truce

Dec. 30, 2012 4:15 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 1, 2013 8:11 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A legal delegation from Gaza's ministry of justice visited Cairo on Saturday to discuss the Egyptian-mediated truce agreement between Hamas and Israel last month, as well as other bilateral issues, Palestinian sources told Ma'an.

The delegation included 13 judges and counselors who took part in talks with Egyptian officials to discuss the terms of a truce agreement which ended eight days of violence between Gaza and Israel in November.

Officials will discuss lifting the naval and land blockade of Gaza, and easing restrictions on Palestinians entering and exiting the territory.

Israel wants Egypt to pressure Hamas and other factions to stop smuggling arms into Gaza, the sources said.

The Egyptian-mediated ceasefire agreement stipulated that both sides should stop all hostilities. It also contained provisions for discussing the opening of Gaza's crossings and facilitating the movement of people and goods.
