GAZA CITY (AFP) -- The Palestinians are examining a proposal for a new 72-hour ceasefire in Gaza, a Hamas spokesman told AFP on Sunday.

"There is a proposal for another 72-hour truce (to allow) for the continuation of negotiations," Sami Abu Zuhri told AFP in Gaza, without saying when it would begin.

"This proposal is being studied," he said, indicating the Palestinian response would depend on "the seriousness of the Israeli position."

His remarks came after Egyptian and Palestinian negotiators wrapped up a fresh round of talks in Cairo, saying they would issue a statement within the coming hours.

The Israeli delegation was currently locked in talks over "all the developments," an official told AFP, without ruling out the possibility the team could return to Cairo.

"The delegation is sitting together to discuss all the developments," he said.

"If they do, it will be this evening or tomorrow."

So far, Egyptian efforts to broker an end to more than a month of fighting have led nowhere, with Israel pulling its team out of talks in Cairo on Friday after Hamas refused to extend a 72-hour ceasefire which had brought relief to millions on both sides of the border.

For the sake of the children of Gaza, if the Palestinian delegation believes there is a chance that the occupation is serious about negotiations, then accept the new ceasefire. Allah guides whom He Will, may Allah swt guide my brothers into making a courageous choice.
