Mossad is investigating Hamas's response to the Gaza ceasefire agreement

Israel's prime minister's office said Tuesday that the country's Mossad spy agency is investigating the response of the Palestinian militant group Hamas to a proposed deal to end fighting in Gaza.
"Hamas' response was delivered by the Qatari Mossad intermediary. Its details are being thoroughly assessed by officials involved in the negotiations," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office said in a statement.
Earlier on January 6, Qatar said that Hamas had given a "positive" response to an offer to release hostages in exchange for an end to the war in Gaza, which US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken would take to Israel, AFP reported.
"We have received a response from Hamas regarding the general framework of the agreement regarding the hostages. The response includes some comments but is generally positive," Qatari Prime Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said after a meeting with Blinken in Doha.
The Qatari prime minister - who a week ago took part in the talks in Paris with Israel, Egypt and the CIA that gave rise to the proposal - said he was "optimistic" but declined to discuss Hamas' response in detail, citing the "delicacy of the circumstances". /BGNES
