    Report: Al-Sisi persuades Abbas to agree to Hamas-Israel ceasefire terms
    November 8, 2018

    Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has persuaded Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to agree to a ceasefire understanding between Israel and Hamas, which the Egyptian intelligence has worked for months to achieve, according to a report in the London-based Arabic daily Al-Hayat.

    Abbas agreed that the ceasefire understanding, which gives Gazans "an opportunity to breath," would take effect two stages: the first within two weeks and the second within six months, Al-Hayat reported.

    According to the report, Israel has agrees to transfer US $90 million from Qatar to Hamas for paying the salaries of Hamas' government officials for six months, as long the transfer takes place under the auspices of the UN. The Egyptian intelligence delegation, led by General Ahmad Abdel Halik, conveyed Israel's consent to Hamas. Funds will arrive in the coming days.

    It was also reported that Israel agreed to expand exports from the Gaza Strip in the first stage,including fresh produce, furniture and clothing. It was the first time in several years that Gazans were allowed to export merchandise.
