Analysts and academics who spoke to the program “Gaza...What Next?”

The Palestinian resistance is aware of the intentions of Israel, which wants a humanitarian truce conditional on the exchange of prisoners, but it rejects a complete ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and the withdrawal of its forces from the Strip.

US President Joe Biden said that Israel agreed not to carry out military activities in the Gaza Strip during the upcoming month of Ramadan.

In Doha, Qatari Foreign Ministry spokesman Majid Al-Ansari said that Qatar is optimistic about the talks and hopes for an end to hostilities during the month of Ramadan, but he stressed that there is no agreement yet between the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) and Israel.

Writer and political researcher Sari Orabi said that the Palestinian resistance has two basic limitations: It seeks to have any deal or settlement that leads to a complete ceasefire in Gaza and the withdrawal of the Israeli occupation forces from the Gaza Strip, but at the same time it is aware of the humanitarian catastrophe caused by the occupation, and therefore She finds herself responsible for searching for urgent solutions and an outlet for the Palestinians within the Strip.

Orabi added that the Israeli occupation wants a humanitarian truce conditional on the exchange of prisoners in the war, and that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeks to get rid of the burden of prisoners that may hinder his army’s operations in Gaza, and at the same time he wants to strip the Palestinian resistance of the prisoner card.

Orabi expressed his belief that the Palestinian resistance is alert to the intentions of the Israelis, and will not throw away the cards in its hands at one stage. It wants to control the stages so that Netanyahu’s plans fail and effectively establish a ceasefire and the withdrawal of the occupation forces from Gaza, stressing that the Palestinian resistance has shown solidity in its negotiations. Contrary to the historical experiences of the Arabs in their negotiations with Israel, where it remained committed to its demands within a reasonable framework of maneuver in dealing with the proposals presented to it.

Israel's conditions

On the other hand, academic and expert on Israeli affairs, Dr. Muhannad Mustafa, believes that Israel, especially its Prime Minister Netanyahu, insists on not ceasefire in Gaza, and they are talking in parallel between truce talks and preparing for a military operation in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.

The fact that the war does not end and resumes after the truce is a fundamental issue for Israel, and it says - as the academic and expert confirms - that the truce is not linked to any form of political perceptions proposed in the region, and is not linked to the military operation in Rafah, meaning that the truce for Netanyahu is only for the sake of Recovering Israeli prisoners held by the Palestinian resistance.

For his part, Professor of Political Science at An-Najah National University, Hassan Ayoub, confirmed that the resistance’s performance on the ground does not indicate Israel’s ability to resolve the negotiation process using military pressure, as the occupation claims, stressing that there is strong criticism of the Israeli army and the state of chaos in which it is floundering, and the resistance has revealed The Palestinian Authority said on Tuesday that the occupation army ended its operations in Khan Yunis (southern Gaza Strip) more than a week ago without achieving any achievement.

Dr. Ayoub believes that the United States of America is throwing its weight towards the success of the negotiation process between the Palestinian resistance and Israel and reaching compromise solutions, but these solutions seem unacceptable to the resistance, especially Hamas, but it does not reject them publicly.

Ayoub pointed to a strategic dimension in the negotiating process, which is that Israel is not accustomed to negotiating with any Palestinian or Arab party that possesses strong cards. He said that there is a strategic game to change the rules of negotiation now and in the future, because what can be agreed upon today will have its negotiating repercussions in the future. The next stages of negotiation.

The professor of political science at An-Najah National University spoke about the points of disagreement between the Americans and the Israelis regarding the political vision after the war on Gaza, as Washington wants the Palestinian Authority to return to Gaza, which Tel Aviv rejects.

In the same context, he stressed that the Americans are proposing a political vision based on the idea of ​​eliminating resistance as a condition in the process of negotiating the future of the region.
