CAIRO – 5 July 2024: Hamas announced on Friday its rejection to any statements or positions that support plans for foreign forces to enter Gaza, regardless of its name or purpose.

The Palestinian movement said that the management of the Gaza Strip after defeating the Israeli aggression should be a ‘purely Palestinian matter’ agreed upon by the Palestinian people.

Hamas added that the Palestinian people will not allow any guardianship or the imposition of any external solutions that detract from their principles based on their pure right to freedom and self-determination.

“We affirm our rejection of any plans or proposals that seek to override the Palestinian will regarding the future of the Gaza Strip,” Hamas said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has given his approval on Friday to send a delegation to resume negotiations for a Gaza ceasefire with mediators.

The destination for the delegation has not been announced, but previous ceasefire discussions have taken place in Cairo, Doha, or Paris over the past few months.

However, Mossad chief David Barnea traveled to Doha today to meet with Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, according to Israeli officials who spoke to the Kan public broadcaster.

Barnea is alone in Doha, as Shin Bet Head Ronen Bar and Nitzan Alon, a prominent member of the negotiating team, are not accompanying him, according to the report.

Netanyahu's office announced the decision to send negotiators following a phone call with US President Joe Biden on Thursday.

"The prime minister informed President Biden about his decision to send a delegation to continue negotiations for the release of hostages," Netanyahu's office stated in a press release.
