Islamic Hamas movement on Wednesday handed over its vision about a ceasefire deal with Israel to Egyptian mediators, a spokesman for the movement said.
The spokesman, Sami Abu Zuhri, said Hamas' stance regarding the Egyptian proposals for a ceasefire was handed over to the Egyptian officials on Wednesday by Mahmoud Zahar, a Gaza-based Hamas leader who held a series of meetings with the Egyptian officials.
According to the spokesman, Hamas' position is based on stopping all kinds of Israeli military escalation, reopening the crossing points into Gaza and lifting the Israeli sanctions on the Hamas-ruled territory.
He added that Hamas insists on the coincident, mutual and full factors when applying the ceasefire deal.
Abu Zuhri said Hamas' decision was made after internal discussions between Hamas leaders inside and outside the Palestinian territories.
Egypt has been mediating between Israel and Hamas to broker a ceasefire deal. Hamas has reportedly accepted that the ceasefire takes place only in Gaza. However, its deposed Premier Ismail Haneya said earlier in the day that the ceasefire should also include Wes Bank.
Hamas seized control of Gaza Strip in last June after routing security forces of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Israel increased military operations and tightened the siege on the enclave after that.
