Hamas 'still waiting' on Egyptian call for renewed negotiations

Aug. 30, 2014 5:12 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 31, 2014 6:53 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas still has not yet received information from Egypt about renewing negotiations with Israel, a senior leader of the Islamist movement said Saturday.

"We are still waiting for an Egyptian notification for plans to continue negotiations," Mousa Abu Marzouq said in a press conference in Gaza's al-Shifa hospital.

Abu Marzouq traveled to Gaza on Thursday to celebrate what Hamas called a victory over Israel after seven weeks of fighting.

Palestinian factions in Gaza and Israel ended a 51-day war on Tuesday with a long-term ceasefire in which Israel agreed to ease its siege on the coastal enclave. Further negotiations regarding unresolved issues such as an airport and seaport in Gaza and the demilitarization of factions in the Strip were to take place in Egypt a month later.
