CAIRO: A Palestinian delegation, including Hamas, agreed on “a ceasefire” and demands to present to Egyptian mediators for a truce with Israel. Demands include an end to Gaza blockade, Israeli troop withdrawal from Gaza, end of the siege of Gaza and opening its border crossings, fishing rights up to 12 nautical miles off Gaza’s coast and release of Palestinian prisoners, said Maher Al Taher, a member of the delegation and an official of Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
