of an indirect cease-fire agreement for the Gaza Strip.
Ismail Haniyeh told foreign reporters in Gaza on Thursday that the
understandings, brokered by Egypt, Qatar and the U.N., now are "in the danger
He said Israel has shown "no respect" for the terms and the 2 million
residents of blockaded Gaza who "have not felt" any improvement to their living
Israel acknowledges no formal arrangements.
Israel and Egypt imposed a blockade after the Islamic militant group
violently seized control of the coastal Palestinian enclave in 2007.

The two have fought three wars over the past decade and the informal
understandings are aimed at preventing another war.
