The Mossad, the foreign intelligence service of the State of Israel, affirmed on Sunday April 14 that Hamas had rejected the latest truce project presented a week earlier by the mediating countries in Cairo.

The rejection of the proposal submitted by the three countries mediating the negotiation – United States, Egypt and Qatar – shows that the leader of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Yahya “Sinouar, does not want a humanitarian agreement or the return of hostages,” Mossad said in a statement released by the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Yahya Sinouar “continues to exploit tensions with Iran” with the aim of “obtaining an escalation in the region”, adds the press release, published a few hours after a large-scale and unprecedented attack by Iran, which launched more than two hundred drones and missiles towards Israel, without causing significant damage. Israel “will continue to work to achieve the objectives of the war against Hamas with all its might, and will turn over every stone to bring back the hostages from Gaza,” the text adds.
