Hamas’s political leader has confirmed it is studying a new proposal to pause the fighting in the Gaza Strip.

Ismail Haniyeh said the group had been invited to discuss a framework set out by Israel, the US, Qatar and Egypt.

It reportedly proposes a six-week truce, when more Israeli hostages would be exchanged for Palestinian prisoners. Ismail Haniyeh stressed that Hamas’s priorities were a permanent ceasefire and full Israeli withdrawal, but Israel’s prime minister ruled them out.
