palestinechronicle | Hamas Accepts Ceasefire Proposal, 6 May
"Ismail Haniyeh, head of the political bureau of the Hamas movement, had a phone call with the Qatari Prime Minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al-Thani, and with the Egyptian Minister of Intelligence, Mr. Abbas Kamel, and informed them of the Hamas movement's approval of their proposal regarding the ceasefire agreement," the movement said in a statement late on Monday. Hamas later said that the necessary measures "to ensure the implementation of the agreement were also reviewed after the movement made its decision out of concern for our people and their supreme interests."

"It is now on the occupation to seize the moment and agree to the proposal presented," the statement added.

Details of the ceasefire proposal are yet to be released. There has been no official response from Israel.
