Rafah CrossingHamas and Islamic Jihad movements announced Saturday that the indirect talks with the Israeli government will be resumed in Cairo on Sunday.

The Israeli and Palestinian negotiators are poised to resume the indirect talks with Egyptian mediators on reaching a more permanent ceasefire before a current truce expires at midnight on Monday.

The Egyptian government persuaded both sides late Wednesday to adhere to a new five-day ceasefire, extending an earlier three-day agreement in order to allow more time to thrash out a longer-term truce.
