Global media outlets report a general collapse of hostage negotiations in Cairo, with all negotiating teams leaving the country.

Sources in the international media reported the complete suspension of hostage deal negotiations. According to reports, Hamas has increased its demands in the last 24 hours, making an agreement “absolutely impossible.”

According to reports in the Arab media, the Hamas delegation left Egypt a few hours ago after understanding that none of the other parties will accept their new demands. Sources involved in the negotiations explained that Hamas’ demands were “more absurd than ever” and that the organization is striving to blow up negotiations.

Meanwhile, the American media is reporting that CIA Director William Burns has also left Cairo, after the United States also concluded that the current talks will not lead to results. Burns is expected to return to the United States and brief the President on events.

It’s also just been reported that the Israeli delegation sent to Cairo has also returned, ending the Cairo negotiations for the foreseeable future.
