Mediators in bid to avert Hamas-Israel face-off

Egypt, Qatar, the United Nations and other international parties are making significant efforts to prevent another military confrontation between Israel and the Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip. On Friday, Israel announced for the first time in 18 months that it will allow merchants and businessmen from the Gaza Strip to enter through the Erez crossing. The announcement came after the relative calm on the Gaza-Israel border during which no balloons or incendiary devices were launched toward Israel.

Hamas sources said that the mediation efforts were being made due to Israel’s insistence on linking reconstruction of the Gaza Strip to a prisoner exchange.
