Until now, since the outbreak of the military confrontation, between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza, it seemed that none of the international and regional efforts aimed at a ceasefire between the two sides had been successful, in light of the gap between the vision of the Hamas leadership in Gaza on the one hand, and the Israeli leadership on the other side, In light of his refusal, most of the reports indicate that he comes mainly from Israel.
And the Israeli Intelligence Minister, Eli Cohen, summarized the Israeli refusal, in statements in which he said that his government decided to reject any proposals regarding the possibility of stopping its new military operations in the Gaza Strip, and in an interview with the Israeli Army Radio on Thursday May 13th, Cohen said, ” We agreed yesterday to totally reject all the different requests for a ceasefire. “
Why does Israel refuse?
The Israeli minister considered that the proposed mediation to reduce the escalation came mainly from the “Hamas” movement, stressing that the current Israeli army plans related to the assassination of senior leaders in the movement, and the reports had indicated that the Israeli side rejected the Egyptian mediation, supported by a Qatari, Turkish and international effort. In light of talk of Israel’s desire to continue its military campaign on Gaza, with the aim of exhausting Hamas’s capabilities, and with the aim of obtaining a moral victory and popular satisfaction at the home, the Israeli leadership.
The Russian news agency TASS quoted a source familiar with the mediation efforts in Cairo as saying that the Egyptian delegation left Tel Aviv, after it failed to convince the Israeli authorities to agree to a ceasefire, and added that the Egyptian side proposed a temporary ceasefire. As a first stage in a sustainable armistice, he added, “But it seems that this initiative has no prospects at present.”
Despite the Israeli rejection of all international and regional demands for a ceasefire so far, many hope that a truce will be reached that stops the fighting between the two sides, at the end of this week, in light of two important developments, the first of which is the UN Security Council session that will take place on Sunday May 16. Which is expected to reach a ceasefire decision, and the second is the presence of the American envoy Hadi Amr in the region, as he arrived in Tel Aviv on Friday May 14, in an American effort to cease fire, during which he travels between Tel Aviv and Gaza.
On the Palestinian side and with regard to Hamas, the head of the movement’s political bureau abroad, Khaled Meshaal, summarized the movement’s conditions for a ceasefire, in a televised interview, saying that these conditions are the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Al-Aqsa Mosque, the provision of freedom of worship, and the cessation of the displacement of families from Sheikh Jarrah Al-Maqdisi, in addition to the release of the detainees during the recent escalation, and the cessation of the aggression on Gaza.
However, the conditions presented by Hamas did not meet any resonance with Israel, which responded with specific phrases saying, “There is no place for discussion, and the process (guardian of the walls) continues,” which seems consistent with the Israeli position, by rejecting all the ceasefire proposals announced so far, as well. It appears consistent with the Israeli position, by denying Hamas any moral victory, or imposing its terms in any possible cease-fire between the two sides.
However, analysts believe that the Israeli leadership should play a balanced game, in light of the damage it has suffered so far, especially on the moral level, by the strikes of Hamas, and that it does not have the luxury of internal political and economic stability, which enables it to continue its military operations, Especially since Hamas will not stand idly by, in the event that Israel prolongs its operations in Gaza.
