Meanwhile, a big statement from the head of Hamas has come out. According to Hamas Chief Ismail Haniyeh, the Palestinian terrorist group is close to a ceasefire agreement with Israel. He said the group has given its response to the Qatari mediators.
Ismail Haniyeh said that at present there is no information about the conditions and rules under which this ceasefire will be held. He said that on Monday, US President Joe Biden had said that he believed that an agreement would be reached between the two soon. White House spokesperson John Kirby had said about an agreement to ensure the release of hostages kept in Gaza and to stop this war. Ismail Haniyeh said that now we have come closer to that agreement.

Which instigated Israel to attack Palestine.
