Hamas confusion over possible ceasefire extension


JPost carries an article asking whether Khaled Meshaal is trying to force a Hamas leadership split with Ismail Haniyeh.

Meshaal made public comments on Wednesday stating Hamas’ commitment to a resumption of rockets; other leaders (privately) stated that they ‘had no choice but to continue with the tehdiyeh’.

Izzedin al-Qassam, the Hamas ‘armed wing’, held a press conference (wearing balaclavas) and giving equally contradictory responses.

Gossip and intrigue? Or a silver lining?
