Qatar intensifies efforts to establish sustainable cease-fire in Israel-Hamas conflict

Qatar intensifies efforts to establish sustainable cease-fir

The Israel-Hamas truce has reached its sixth day on Wednesday, marked by the release of additional hostages from Gaza in exchange for Palestinian prisoners.

While this marks a positive development, international mediator, Qatar, is intensifying efforts to establish a "sustainable" cease-fire to ensure lasting peace in the region.

With the final 24 hours of the extended agreement underway, expectations linger for another exchange. However, Qatar emphasizes the necessity of transitioning from temporary pauses to a more enduring arrangement.

Qatar Foreign Ministry spokesman Majed al Ansari highlighted the primary focus on achieving a "sustainable truce" that would lead to further negotiations and eventually bring an end to the ongoing conflict.

“Our main focus right now, and our hope, is to reach a sustainable truce that will lead to further negotiations and eventually to an end to this war," Foreign Ministry spokesman Majed al Ansari told a Doha news conference.

"However, we are working with what we have. And what we have right now is the provision to the agreement that allows us to extend days as long as Hamas is able to guarantee the release of at least 10 hostages."

Despite the existing provision allowing extensions, Qatar aims for a more comprehensive resolution, emphasizing the importance of Hamas guaranteeing the release of hostages.
