Israel’s government said Monday it will send a delegation to mediators to discuss a Gaza truce proposal accepted by Hamas, which it called “far from Israel’s demands”.

“Even though the Hamas proposal is far from Israel’s essential demands, Israel will send a working-level delegation to the mediators,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said in a statement after a war cabinet meeting.

“The war cabinet has unanimously decided that Israel is continuing the operation in Rafah to exert military pressure on Hamas in order to advance the release of our hostages and the other objectives of the war,” the statement also said.
