A Hamas source informed Al Jazeera that Israel has responded to the demands of the Islamic Resistance Movement through intermediaries. According to the source, Israel continues to create obstacles in reaching an agreement.

The source stated that the draft agreement received from Israel via intermediaries lacked provisions for a complete cessation of hostilities or the withdrawal of troops from the Gaza Strip.

Additionally, the Hamas source reported to Al Jazeera that Israel's response to the demand for the return of displaced persons to their homes in northern Gaza involves relocating them to temporary camps.
