Hamas: we’ll hold meetings with factions to crystallize a position on the calm

The Hamas Movement reported that it would embark on holding consultations with Palestinian factions to crystallize a position on the extension of the truce with Israel and to assess the previous stage in light of the serious Israeli violations of the calm.
Hamas spokesman Ayman Taha said in an exclusive statement to the PIC that his Movement will hold unilateral and bilateral meetings with different factions to get suggestions and ideas about the truce before coming up with one unified position towards it.
Taha underlined that Israel"s reluctance to open the crossings and its resumption of military aggression will be a centerpiece of discussions about the truce which will be conducted academically and professionally for the higher interest of the Palestinian people.
The truce was sharply violated by Israel when its troops carried out incursions, aerial attacks and assassinations claiming the lives of 17 Palestinian resistance fighters last month. These serious violations prompted the resistance to retaliate with rocket attacks on Israeli targets adjacent to the Gaza Strip.
