Reuters reported on Wednesday that Hamas has agreed to a Qatari-mediated deal that would see it releasing 50 hostages in exchange for a three-day ceasefire.

The deal also has Israel releasing some Palestinian female and teen prisoners from Israeli prisons and increasing the amount of humanitarian aid allowed into Gaza.

According to the report, Israel has not yet agreed to the deal and is still negotiating the details.

Kan reported that Israel is demanding that Hamas release a larger number of hostages.

The deal is being coordinated with the US.

  1. Being coordinated with the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ i.e. USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ is still the super power:- Not Russia ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ nor China ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ
    But for Heaen sake:- Get ALL 240 hostages out IMMEDIATELY

  2. Catlover613,
    Don’t talk nonsense. Hamas will release the promised 50, but it remains to be seen if Israel will agree to the deal. Netanyahu has repeatedly said that he would only consider a cease-fire in exchange for ALL the hostages. So we’ll see, Hashem is in charge….

  3. 50 hostages for every 3 days of ceasefire, mathematically speaking that comes out to 15 days of regrouping for the maniacal Hamas terrorists.
    It also seems from what is written above, Hamas wants Palestinian prisoners released as well, the last time Israel did something like that yahya si war the orchestrator of the oct 7th attacks was released. It hardly seems likely, Israel would make the same mistake twice

  4. I hope they donโ€™t agree to it. 3 days is a long time to get their act together and cause more damage. The IDF has to find all the hostages militarily.

  5. Hamas is desperate. As such, the rule of thumb is continue applying pressure. Obviously, it’s working. Continue to apply pressure until they agree to unconditionally release hostages. Only then, go full force and obliterate them.

  6. Of course this would be a great step but at the end of the day a cease fire is wrong until Hamas is destroyed. What prevents them from doing something crazy during the cease fire. It doesn’t seem right.

  7. Israel needs to negotiate a much better deal. Step one, Hamas supply a complete list of all hostages. Step 2, a short cease fire. Certainly all civilians need to be released in one group at a minimum during that ceasefire. Then, back to war.
