Progress is “slow” on Egypt-brokered truce talks with Israel, says Hamas spox

The Hamas-Israel truce talks Egypt is brokering have not fallen through, but progress is slow, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said yesterday, according to the Times of Israel. Egypt has been working on two separate truces over the past several months: One between rival Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah, and the other between Hamas and Israel that would see the latter easing border restrictions on Gaza. Heated Palestinian border protests last week have seemingly prompted renewed talks with Israel, and led to an altogether new proposal for Fatah-Hamas reconciliation which could see control of the Gaza strip handed over to Fatah’s Palestinian Authority.
