Hamas has decided not to push Israel too far before Tuesday’s elections, with the progressing ceasefire talks between Israel and Hamas in mind.

TPS has learned that Egypt’s security service has arrested a Hamas terrorist, Zaki Sakani from Gaza.

He was arrested after the Egyptians were tipped off by Hamas that Sakani had plans to independently launched rockets towards Israel from Gaza.

Hamas obtained the information from Sakani’s commander, who was arrested by Hamas. The two were members of an al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades cell which planned to attack Israel on its own initiative.

Hamas will hold its fire in the coming days to enable Egypt to finalize the details of the long-term ceasefire between it and Israel.
