Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal says that negotiations with Israel “seem positive” regarding a long-term ceasefire in Gaza but admits that terror attacks will continue elsewhere.

Mashaal told the London-based Arabic paper Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, that although no agreement with Israel has been reached, contacts “seem positive.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu has denied that Israel is having any contacts with Hamas, even indirect.

The Hamas chief said that any agreement would be limited to Gaza, implying that terror would continue in Judea and Samaria.
