American television channel CBS News reports that negotiations with a delegation from Hamas, which took place in Cairo on Saturday, May 4, concluded without reaching an agreement.

A new round of negotiations is anticipated today, May 5.

Israel stated that it would refrain from sending a delegation to the talks until Hamas responded to Israel's latest proposal. An adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informed CBS News on Saturday that "the end of the war will come with the end of Hamas in the Gaza Strip."

US CIA Director William Burns traveled to Cairo on Friday for discussions. This visit followed extensive technical negotiations and a new proposal from Israel, described as "generous" by US officials, as noted by CBS News.
