Mashaal offers 10-year truce if Israel withdraws from lands it seized in 1967

DAMASCUS, Syria - The leader of Hamas says his Palestinian militant group is offering Israel a 10-year truce if it withdraws from all lands it seized in the 1967 war.


DAMASCUS, Syria - The leader of Hamas says his Palestinian militant group is offering Israel a 10-year truce if it withdraws from all lands it seized in the 1967 war.

Khaled Mashaal says he made the offer to former U.S. president Jimmy Carter in talks Saturday.

Mashaal says Hamas would accept a Palestinian state limited to the lands Israel seized in 1967 - an implicit acceptance that Israel would exist alongside that state.

But Mashaal says the group would never formally recognize Israel.
