Blinken: Some of Hamas’ amendments in response to the ceasefire proposal are not implementable

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said on Wednesday that Hamas proposed “several changes” in its response to the ceasefire proposal, and that some of them are implementable, but others are not.


He added in a press conference in Doha that some of Hamas' proposals in response go beyond what the movement had previously accepted in talks on a ceasefire agreement and the release of detainees in Gaza.


White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said on Wednesday that the changes proposed by the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) to the ceasefire proposal are minor and that the United States will work with Egypt and Qatar to fill the gaps in the proposal.


He added: "Many of the proposed changes are minor and expected. Other changes differ fundamentally from what was outlined in the UN Security Council resolution."
