Negotiations on a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip began in Paris with individual meetings of representatives of the Mossad, Qatar, the United States of America (USA) and Egypt.

Previously, there were representatives of Hamas at the meeting, who are waiting for Israel's response, reports RTS.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu presented the war cabinet with a plan for post-war Gaza, and the Palestinian Authority rejects it, calling it "a plan for prolonged genocide".

However, Qatar, Egypt and the US, as mediators, do not give up negotiations on a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.

Their representatives held separate meetings in Paris with the head of Israel's Mossad intelligence service, David Barney, and senior Hamas officials.

Mediators have stepped up efforts to secure a cease-fire in Gaza, hoping to halt an Israeli assault on the city of Rafah, which is currently home to more than 1.5 million displaced Palestinians.

Israel has previously announced that it will attack the city if an agreement is not reached soon, and Washington has warned its Middle Eastern ally that such a move would lead to a large number of civilian casualties.

During that time, the Israeli army does not stop its operations in all parts of Gaza, it operates from land, sea and air.

The fiercest fighting is taking place in the south, especially in the Khan Younis area, in the south of the enclave, where Hamas claims to have its primary base.

Palestinian officials, on the other hand, claim that the IDF is targeting civilian objects throughout the Gaza Strip.

The Gaza Health Ministry said at least 29.514 Palestinians have been killed and 69.616 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7.
