The Palestinian independence organization Hamas has asked Israel for a written commitment to withdraw its troops from Gaza. A Hamas official, who did not wish to be named, reported this information in a media report.

According to the news, Hamas has demanded from Israel that Israel will make a clear and written commitment that it will withdraw its troops from Gaza in the second phase of the three-phase ceasefire.

“We are confirming preparations to reach an agreement on the exchange of prisoners between the two sides,” a Hamas official said on condition of anonymity, according to the report.

On Saturday, Hamas said it had submitted its response to the proposed six-week ceasefire to Egyptian and Qatari mediators.

An Egyptian official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Hamas wanted a comprehensive and phased deal. These include a permanent ceasefire, the withdrawal of Israeli troops from Gaza and the release of all Israeli prisoners in exchange for a large number of Palestinian prisoners.

The Egyptian official said mediators would carefully review the Hamas response before calling for another round of talks.
