Israeli venture in Rafah doomed to failure: PIJ’s al-Hindi – Exclusive

Deputy Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) movement, Mohammad al-Hindi, considered Tuesday that the proposal for a ceasefire agreement has not collapsed, clarifying that it is currently “in the hands of the mediators.”

Al-Hindi affirmed to Al Mayadeen that there is a national consensus on the draft agreement endorsed by the mediators, including the United States, adding that the document presented by Hamas on behalf of the Resistance factions represents the Palestinian national stance.

The PIJ official indicated that the Palestinian consensus is met with Israeli confusion, adding that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has lost all means of pressure and does not want an agreement, as it would depict the end of his political career.

He reiterated that the stance of the Resistance remains clear and prioritizes the interests of the Palestinian people, which is also echoed by the mediators who are today under trial.

The Palestinian official said, contrary to Israeli claims, that “Israel’s” approval of the mediators’ proposal was conveyed to the Resistance.

Al-Hindi mentioned that the main issue that needed to be discussed in the agreement was a ceasefire and its “sustainability”, affirming that the mediators provided guarantees for a permanent cessation of hostilities.
