US Secretly pleading Hamas for Cease-Fire —Qatar’s major claim

According to a source with ties to the Qatari government, Dr. Azmi Bishara, informed al-Arabi that the United States is attempting to persuade Hamas—through intermediaries in Qatar and Egypt—that it will be challenging for Israel to resume hostilities in Gaza following an extended hiatus. This information was reported by Haaretz. This is due to the fact that Hamas has not yet responded to Paris’s proposal for the captive release and cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.
