A delegation of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) arrived here Wednesday from the Syrian capital of Damascus on talks for a ceasefire deal with Israel.

During the several days' visit to Egypt, the Hamas team will hold talks with Egyptian officials on the latest developments in the Palestinian territories, the Egyptian official MENA news agency reported.

The Hamas delegation, led by former Hamas Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar and former Interior Minister Said Siam, met former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and a number of Egyptian officials in Cairo last week.

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 Prime Minister Ismail Haneya said earlier in the day that the ceasefire should also include West Bank.

Meanwhile, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the movement's stance regarding the Egyptian proposals for the ceasefire was handed over to the Egyptian officials on Wednesday by Zahar during their meetings.

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.
