The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas reportedly issued a statement Thursday declaring that there will be no more discussions about releasing the hostages it is holding until Israel stops its military campaign in Gaza.

“There is a Palestinian national decision that there should be no talk about prisoners or exchange deals except after a full cessation of aggression,” wrote Hamas in a statement.

Khalil Al-Hayya, the deputy chairman of Hamas said, “We want an end to the aggression, then we will go to reconstruction and construction, and then we will talk about the prisoners.”

However, one Palestinian official said that Hamas remains uninterested in talks.
