Domination, not partnership

Israel has arrogantly rejected outright Palestinian proposals for a mutual ceasefire in both the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, arguing that there can be no “parity” between the Israeli occupation army and Palestinian resistance groups.

Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah as well as other smaller guerrilla groups notified Egyptian mediators of their readiness to halt all military operations against Israel, if the Jewish state agreed to reciprocate by ceasing the assassination of Palestinian activists.

Egypt, which has been hosting representatives of the major Palestinian factions, reportedly proposed a “ceasefire deal” dubbed “Gaza-First” whereby a mutual ceasefire would take hold in Gaza and later be extended to the West Bank.
