Hebrew media: Hamas demands Turkish-Russian guarantees in any deal regarding Gaza

The Hebrew Channel 13 said that the Hamas movement is demanding guarantees from Russia and Turkey in any prisoner exchange deal and a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, explaining that the occupation authorities oppose this request, while there was no comment from Hamas, Turkey, or Russia confirming or denying the Palestinian movement’s request for this.

The Hebrew Channel 13 said that the Hamas movement is demanding guarantees from Russia and Turkey in any deal to exchange prisoners and detainees and establish a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

The channel reported on Monday evening, “The new demands were delivered by Hamas at the end of the week, which are: First, they demand guarantees from Russia and Turkey as part of any deal that will bear fruit, in addition to the participation of Qatar and Egypt, which have played the role of mediator in the talks so far,” indicating that “ "Israel opposes this request."

She added that Hamas also demands the release of the 48 freed prisoners who were released in the deal to exchange soldier Gilad Shalit for Palestinian prisoners in 2011 and who were later re-arrested by the occupation authorities.

The Hebrew channel indicated that "Israel is ready to release a large part of these prisoners, but not all of them."

There was no comment from Hamas, Turkey, or Russia confirming or denying the movement’s request for guarantees from the two countries as part of an expected deal.

Earlier Tuesday, Mossad intelligence chief David Barnea returned to Israel from Doha, after a visit that lasted hours during which he held talks with Egyptian and Qatari mediators regarding reaching a prisoner exchange deal with Hamas and a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

Yesterday, Monday, the Israeli occupation delegation arrived in Doha after obtaining authorization from the War Council to discuss the details of the issues on the negotiating table, according to the official Hebrew Broadcasting Corporation.

The commission stated that "Israel intends to present a proposal that includes a ceasefire for a period of 6 weeks, in exchange for the release of 40 kidnapped persons."

She added: "Among the obstacles hindering reaching an agreement at this stage is Hamas's demand to determine the identity of the security prisoners who will be released (from Israeli prisons), and not to divide the Gaza Strip, which would allow the residents of its north to return to their homes."

On the other hand, National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich threatened to withdraw from the government if it was decided to release Palestinian prisoners accused of killing or participating in the killing of Israelis, as part of a potential prisoner exchange deal between Tel Aviv and Hamas.
