As for Hussein, “There is no truce yet and it is all a waste of time. Israel still rejects the two most important demands of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), which are the withdrawal of the army from Gaza and a cessation of the war, and all the news about the positive atmosphere is from one party (Israel) to pressure Hamas to hold it responsible for the failure.” Deal".
