Even though the conflict in Gaza rages on, there is increasing discussion about how and when it will end.
Egyptian and Palestinian negotiators met again on Wednesday in Cairo and came out of their meetings with the first public statements on a proposed cease-fire. While no Israeli representatives participated, an Egyptian official said they were “working with the Israeli side.”
At a brief news conference, a Hamas spokesman said his government still has reservations about the agreement.
Another spokesman for Hamas told reporters he was “optimistic now because there is no other choice for us.”
Daniel Levy, the director of the Middle East task force at the New America Foundation, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the Egyptian plan for a cease-fire, the Israeli military’s position and other prospects for bringing an end to the conflict.
