Hamas: Still no ceasefire extension deal

Hamas said that an agreement to further extend the ceasefire, which is expiring tonight, has still not been reached, Sky News reported on Wednesday citing a statement from Mahmoud al Mardawi, a senior Hamas spokesperson.

"Negotiations in Doha [Qatar] regarding extending the humanitarian truce are continuing. We are open to all truce proposals according to what we have specified, and the occupation is the one that imposes the obstacles," the spokesperson explained.

Meanwhile, addressing the question of releasing the sixth batch of hostages, he said that there was a delay due to "logistical obstacles." Earlier, Hamas confirmed the release of two Russian hostages.
