For the last six months, U.S. officials have been conducting secret, back-channel talks with Hamas regarding arrangements for the new Palestinian unity government, BuzzFeed.com confirmed Wednesday
On May 22, WND was first to report on the recent secret U.S.-Hamas talks. Middle Eastern security officials told WND the U.S. held a clandestine meeting in mid-May in Egypt with Ghazi Hamad, the deputy foreign minister of Hamas.
The officials would not say whether the meeting was with a current member of the U.S. government or a former diplomat acting as a proxy for the Obama administration.
Messages were exchanged about Hamas’ intentions as part of a newly formed Palestinian unity government with the rival Fatah party, led by Mahmoud Abbas, the officials told WND.
Now BuzzFeed adds new details about the scope and duration of the alleged U.S.-Hamas talks.
