A Hamas delegation, led by the group’s political leader Ismail Haniyeh, has left Egypt after three days of discussions in the capital Cairo.

According to a Hamas statement, the delegation met Israeli officials and the head of Egypt’s intelligence service Abbas Kamel, and discussed a ceasefire agreement which would involve the release of Israeli captives and Palestinian prisoners.

Also discussed was the flow of humanitarian aid into northern Gaza and ongoing tensions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, where Israeli forces have prevented Muslims going to worship in recent weeks.

The White House coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa was also in Egypt this week for talks.
