Agreement with Israel must lead to ceasefire, withdrawal of troops

Jerusalem:  Any prisoner exchange agreement with Israel must include a complete ceasefire, the withdrawal of all Israeli forces from the Gaza Strip, the opening of checkpoints, and the supply of necessary food into the Gaza Strip, Hamas’ head of international relations, Basem Naim, told Sputnik on Friday.

“The attitude of the movement [Hamas] has not changed; we have no problems with some tactical details, but it is important that any agreement leads to a complete and comprehensive ceasefire, the withdrawal of all [Israeli] troops from the Gaza Strip, the opening of checkpoints and the supply of necessary food, as well as the continuation of the exchange of prisoners with the Israelis,” Naim said.
