Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has persuaded Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to agree to a ceasefire understanding between Israel and Hamas. The report has been confirmed by London-based Arabic daily.

Last weekend, Abbas and Sisi met in Sharm El Sheikh, where the Egyptian president gave his Palestinian counterpart a detailed review of the Egyptian efforts to reach the ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, as well as the attempts to revive the Palestinian reconciliation.

According to London-based Arabic daily Al-Hayat, Abbas reportedly agreed to the peace agreements in order to give Gazans some "breathing space".

Also, the Egyptian intelligence has worked for months to achieve this peace reconcilliation.

The report quotes, the understandings reached include two stages: the first will take two to three weeks, and the second will take six months. Further, Israel has agreed to transfer US $90 million from Qatar to Hamas for paying the salaries of Hamas' government officials for six months, as long the transfer takes place under the auspices of the UN , The Jerusalem Post reported.

The Egyptian intelligence delegation, led by General Ahmad Abdel Halik, conveyed Israel's consent to Hamas. Funds will arrive in the coming days. UNI XC KPV 1604
