Shortly thereafter, the terrorist group announced the details of the agreement it has approved. The deal includes a five-day truce and stipulates the release of “fifty non-military captives and foreign nationals, in exchange for the occupying authorities releasing 300 child and female prisoners.”

Hamas also specified that the pause in fighting would entail “a total suspension of Israeli flights over Gaza, except in the northern areas where Israel will limit flights to six hours daily.”

According to Hamas, 300 trucks carrying food, medical aid and fuel will be allowed into “all regions of the Gaza Strip.” Hamas also reported that the Israeli hostages will be released incrementally, with ten being released each day. The terror organization added that if the first stage of the exchange is successful, there is a possibility of releasing a further 50 hostages in a similar deal.

Israel has not yet commented on the developing deal or on whether it has agreed to the Hamas preconditions. A senior Israeli official said that there is still “technical work” to be done but said that the deal “is very close” to being implemented.

An official who is involved in the negotiations told the Walla news site on Tuesday that the Qatari government is expected to announce the deal during the course of the day.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the War Cabinet on Monday evening met the families of some of the hostages being held by Hamas in Gaza. During the meeting, the members of the cabinet heard the representatives of the families and responded to their questions.

Netanyahu told the families: “The return of the hostages is a sacred task. We have a deep commitment to it and we deal with the issue every day. We will not let up until we complete the task. I say on behalf of all of us: We are committed to this. I am responsible, along with my colleagues, for the return of the hostages.”

At the conclusion of the meeting he added, “I listened to the pain of the families. We spoke heart to heart, I shared with them as much as I could about the diplomatic, intelligence and operational efforts that we are leading around the clock.”

“I told the families that our hostages are always before my eyes – from the moment I get up in the morning until I go to bed late at night – all the time. We will not stop fighting until we return our hostages home, destroy Hamas and ensure that there is no more threat from Gaza,” Netanyahu said.

I wonder if the IDF is seeking daas Torah on this very difficult decision. Might not be a bad idea.

As much we desperately want Everyone back alive, I feel israel is playing in to the terorists, better if the get rid of all of them fast (including Hisboalla & Iran) the same way the US did in Japan (remember?…) so the bleeding harts dummies won’t have time to complain

I celebrate any release of hostages. However, this action would turn Israeli gains into a loss, in particular the suspension of overhead drones.

Simply remember, that the same people negotiating with the terrorists now, were in charge of security on Oct 7.

Just Say’en.

There is a certain point where if you squeeze Hamas any more then CV”S the hostages become a burden and they are in danger. We may be reaching that point and I think this where Bibi feels, this is our chance.

Interesting discussion, on MSNBC, quoting the Israeli military spokesman, “we have time for years, to fight and uproot Hamas. But to rescue the hostage’s we don’t have time. Interesting take.

Why are the lives of our young soldiers worth less than the live of hostages?.
We are ready to sacrifice hundreds and maybe even thousands of military personnel to finally defeat Hamas once and for all, because we realize there is a price for protecting our country.
If the price includes the potential lives of hostages then so let it be.
Unfortunately this is. Other bitter defeat for Israel by the hands of Hamas.
This cowardly leftist government has snatched defeat from the hands of victory.
