CIA and Mossad directors meeting with the Prime Minister of Qatar dedicated to the truce in Gaza

The heads of the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Israeli Mossad met with the Qatari prime minister yesterday in Doha to discuss further steps after the two-day extension of the truce between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas, reported Al Jazeera.

CIA Director William Burns and David Barnea, head of the Mossad intelligence service, spoke yesterday with Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani, a day after Doha announced a two-day extension to an initial four-day humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza.

CIA Director William Burns was in Doha "for meetings on the conflict between Israel and Hamas, including discussions about hostages," an unnamed US official said.

Otherwise, Qatar, where several political leaders of Hamas are located, leads the negotiations between the Palestinian militant group and Israel. At the meeting, the officials discussed the possible parameters of the new phase of the ceasefire agreement. It is also indicated that they considered what is needed to achieve a ceasefire that would last more than a few days. Before that meeting, Qatari officials spoke with Hamas officials to get a sense of what the group might agree to.
