Hamas and Islamic Jihad prepared for a constructive agreement


Jun 12, 2024

The radical Palestinian groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad have expressed their willingness to agree to a ceasefire. In a joint statement, they responded to a proposed agreement presented by mediators from Qatar and Egypt. At the same time, an Israeli government representative indicated support for a UN resolution calling for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. The representative emphasized that Israel would continue its military operation until it had achieved all of its objectives, including destroying Hamas’ military capabilities, freeing all hostages, and ensuring that the Gaza Strip would not pose a threat to Israel in the future.

During Israel’s military operation in Jenin in the West Bank, at least three people were reported killed according to Palestinian sources. The Ministry of Health in Ramallah confirmed this on Tuesday. Israeli media reported that a special unit conducted a raid in the town of Kafr Dan, north of Jenin, during which armed Palestinians opened fire on them. The Israeli troops, with support from a combat helicopter, engaged in a battle with the armed Palestinians. According to reports, the undercover special unit entered the town to make an arrest.

Jenin and its surrounding area are known as strongholds of militant Palestinians, leading the Israeli army to conduct frequent raids there. Since the beginning of the Gaza war following the Hamas massacre on October 7, more than 500 Palestinians have lost their lives in Israeli military operations, confrontations, or attacks as reported by the Ministry of Health in the West Bank. Additionally, there has been an increase in settler violence against Palestinians.
