The Claim

Hamas Declared its Readiness to Recognize Israel in Exchange for a Ceasefire,

Emerging story

A recent tweet by the editor-in-chief of Independent Arabia, Atwan Al-Ahmari, claimed that despite calls for a ceasefire in wars, no one has the right of decision except the combatants on the ground. He also stated that the gunfire continued even after Hamas expressed readiness to recognize Israel in exchange for a ceasefire.

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar investigated the claim and found it to be misleading, as Hamas did not express readiness to recognize Israel in exchange for a ceasefire.

Hamas Has Not Declared its Readiness to Recognize Israel

Misbar examined the data issued by the Hamas movement and its spokespersons since October 7, including those related to the ceasefire and humanitarian aid. We found no proposal for recognition of Israel in exchange for a ceasefire, contrary to the claim made by the editor-in-chief of Independent Arabia on his account on the "X" platform.

Hamas Calls for an End to the Aggression and the Rescue of Hospitals

The circulation of these claims comes after Hamas called on Arab and Islamic countries assembled at the joint Arab-Islamic summit hosted in Riyadh on Saturday to halt the aggression on the Gaza Strip and open the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza for the entry of emergency humanitarian aid.

Hamas proposed the formation of committees in all medical, humanitarian, relief, and parliamentary fields to bring in relief, medical, and food supplies, as well as fuel, and to rescue hospitals that went out of service, and those that will go out of service too.

More Than Two Thousand Missing Individuals in the Gaza Strip, Including 1350 Children

Casualties of the Israeli Aggression on Gaza

A Temporary Ceasefire in Exchange for a Prisoner Exchange Deal

The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth published a report stating that discussions about implementing a prisoner exchange deal for the release of child and civilian prisoners are still ongoing, in exchange for a temporary ceasefire and the entry of fuel into Gaza. At the same time, the Israeli Prime Minister expressed his rejection of Palestinian conditions for the release of Israeli prisoners, but the proposal is under consideration according to the newspaper.
