Hebrew media outlets revealed that negotiations on Monday are in place regarding a new Israeli offer for a deal to release hostages held by Hamas.
The Israeli Broadcasting Authority explained that the new Israeli proposal includes four main points:
- Release kidnapped non-soldiers.
- Long-term ceasefire.
- Tactical withdrawal for the Israeli army from several areas in Gaza Strip.
- Release Palestinian security prisoners from occupation prisons.
The Israeli Broadcasting Authority reported that Tel Aviv anticipated a response on Tuesday from Qatar regarding Hamas’ position on the broad outlines of the initiative, but according to the messages received from there, the matter will be postponed for a day or two due to the current military operations of the occupation army in Khan Yunis.
An Israeli political official said: “We are noticing a shift in Hamas’ position and we are optimistic. But everything could change at any moment.”
