Hamas Accuses Netanyahu of Creating Obstacles to Ceasefire Talks

His criticism came after Israeli media reported Netanyahu caught senior Israeli officials off guard over the weekend when he announced a list of so-called non-negotiables for ceasefire talks. One unnamed official told the Times of Israel, “Negotiations have to be conducted behind closed doors — not in press releases, and definitely not the moment before the start of a meeting to determine the next stage of talks.”
