Husam Badran from the Hamas Political Bureau informed CNN that there's no scheduled date for resuming ceasefire and prisoner release talks in Cairo. Badran criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for not addressing what he considers basic needs of Palestinians in Gaza, including violence cessation, force withdrawal, aid provision, and return of displaced people.

The Hamas delegation left Cairo last week after talks made no significant progress.

Husam Badran cares little about the fate of the civilian population in Gaza. The less they can feed themselves, the better it is for the movement's image internationally.

It was indeed his organization that triggered the attacks on October 7th in Israel. It was his militants who murdered and raped civilians.

The Hamas is aware that the release of the hostages is the last card it has left. It is not ready to give in.

According to experts, around forty hostages are still alive.
