“U“A very generous proposal for a 40-day ceasefire and the release of thousands of Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the release of hostages” was presented to Hamas, Cameron told a World Economic Forum meeting in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

A Hamas delegation is expected in Egypt today to respond to the mediators’ latest proposal for a truce in the Gaza Strip associated with the release of hostages held by the Palestinian Islamist movement, after almost seven months of war between Israel and Hamas in that Palestinian territory.

“I hope Hamas accepts this deal and, frankly, all the pressure in the world and all eyes must be on it today to tell it to accept this deal,” Cameron said.

“The proposed agreement will lead to the end of the fighting, which we all desperately want,” he added.

Egypt, Qatar and the United States have been trying for months to negotiate an agreement between Israel and Hamas, and the recent dynamics appear to suggest a new push to end the fighting.

The British Foreign Minister (MNE) furthermore defended a “political horizon for a two-state solution”, with an independent Palestine coexisting with Israel.

“The responsible [pelo ataque] of October 7th, Hamas leaders must leave Gaza and the terrorist infrastructures in Gaza must be dismantled”, he stressed.

“The Palestinian people must have a political future, but Israel’s security must also be guaranteed, and these two elements must occur alongside each other,” he concluded.

On October 7 last year, fighters from the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) — in power in the Gaza Strip since 2007 and classified as a terrorist organization by the United States, the European Union and Israel — carried out an attack on Israeli territory. unprecedented proportions since the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, killing 1,163 people, most of them civilians.

They also took 250 hostages, around 130 of whom remain in captivity and 34 have since died, according to the most recent report by Israeli authorities.

In retaliation, Israel declared a war to “eradicate” Hamas, which today entered its 206th day, continuing to threaten to spread throughout the Middle East region, and has so far left 34,454 dead in the Gaza Strip and more than 77,000 injured. and thousands of missing people presumably buried in the rubble, most of them civilians, according to updated figures from local authorities.

The conflict has also caused nearly two million people to be displaced, plunging the overpopulated and poor Palestinian enclave into a serious humanitarian crisis, with more than 1.1 million people in a “situation of catastrophic hunger” that is claiming victims – “the highest number ever recorded” by the UN in studies on food security in the world.
