Hamas: indirect Gaza truce talks with Israel 'in advanced stages'
UN- and Egyptian-mediated talks on a deal to tamp down tensions between Israel and the Gaza Strip are in "advanced stages," a senior member of the Palestinian enclave's dominant Islamist Hamas group said on Wednesday.

 

The remarks were echoed by a top Israeli lawmaker, who predicted a possible breakthrough after four months of confrontations and clashes that stirred mutual threats of war.
