Gaza, Aug 30 (IANS) | Publish Date: 8/30/2018 11:02:36 AM IST

The Hamas chief Yahya Sinwar in the Gaza Strip said the prospect of an Egyptian-sponsored cease-fire agreement with Israel will be decided in two weeks.

The remarks by Sinwar came during a four-hour meeting with writers and political analysts at his office in Gaza City on Wednesday, Xinhua reported, quoting website Palestine Now.

“In two weeks, the prospect of the calm agreement will be clear and by mid-October, the Palestinian citizens of Gaza will notice the positive changes, if the efforts of Cairo prosper,” Sinwar told the meeting.

Meanwhile, he denied that the negotiations in the Egyptian capital have promised an airport for Gaza in the Israeli city of Eilat or a seaport in Cyprus.

“Hamas seeks a calm agreement without paying any political price,” he noted.

Sinwar also threatened that Hamas could “keep the sirens wail in central Israel for six months” if no cease-fire is reached.
