These questions come in the midst of Arab media talk about US-Israeli talks on a possible operation by the Israeli army in the southern Gaza Strip, while Washington has not yet given its final approval to implement it, in addition to the demands of some Israeli ministers to resume fighting.Earlier in the day, Hamas and Israel announced the extension of the truce agreed upon between them in the Gaza Strip for one additional day, as a result of the efforts of mediators and to continue the prisoner exchange process. Hamas and Israel had signals, shortly before the announcement of the extension of the truce, signals of their readiness to resume fighting if no agreement was reached to extend the truce.International pressureDr. Mokhtar Ghobashi, vice president of the Arab Center for Political and Strategic Studies, considered that "the influential parties on the international and regional scale are now more convinced of the need to reach a permanent calm," considering that "the adoption of one truce after another can eventually reach a truce." Ghobashi told Sputnik: "During this truce, the parties recognize each other's conditions, and mediators try to reconcile the parties in many points of disagreement, which is the reason for their success so far." Ghobashi believes that "there is an American conviction closer to a comprehensive calm and a ceasefire than the renewed clashes, as what has been seen of horrific destruction in the north no one wants to repeat in the south, regardless of Washington's absolute support for Israel and its operation, but it is more related to conviction Ghobashi believes that "international pressure continues, especially in light of the flexibility shown by Hamas in the exchange of military prisoners and soldiers, in exchange for the release of many Palestinians in Israeli prisons." In the same context, Jamal Zahalka, head of the National Rally party in the 48 territories and a former Israeli Knesset member, said that "Israel will continue the war as long as the United States continues to supply it with ammunition, equipment, bombs and political, moral and financial support, as the Biden administration has adopted the goals of the entire Israeli war, insists on the return of all Israeli prisoners, and rejects a permanent ceasefire before Israel achieves its goal of dismantling the military capabilities of Hamas." But it may change its position, forced, if its interests are threatened, such as the rebellion of some Arab regimes, or the region standing on the verge of a regional war in which Iran participates, and Biden may find himself forced to stop the war so as not to lose the elections because of his positions in support of Israel. According to him, the ceasefire agreement between Hamas and Israel stipulated a truce in the Gaza Strip for 4 days, and the release of 3 Palestinian prisoners, women and children, in exchange for each Israeli prisoner, and 200 trucks of relief and medical materials, and 4 trucks of fuel and gas cylinders are brought daily to all areas of the Gaza Strip, and it was agreed, on November 27, to extend the truce for two additional days under the same terms as the original truce agreement.
