Hamas 'needs guarantees from US' that Israeli forces will not invade Rafah

GAZA, MAY 5: Spokesperson for Hamas Osama Hamdan has stated that the fighter group needed a guarantee from the United States that the Israeli military would not invade Rafah after the ceasefire deal.

“We are still talking about the main issues, which are the complete ceasefire and complete withdrawal [of Israel] from Gaza,” he told Al Jazeera in an interview.

“Unfortunately, there was a clear statement from Netanyahu saying regardless of any ceasefire or not, he’ll continue the attack against Rafah – which means there will be no ceasefire.

“Our understanding to achieve a ceasefire means there will be no more attacks anywhere in Gaza, including Rafah,” he said.
