A tentative deal has been brokered between Israel, the United States, and Hamas, in which a five-day pause in fighting in Gaza is agreed upon in exchange for the release of at least 50 female and child hostages held by Hamas.

The deal, facilitated by the U.S. and Qatar, aims to bring about the first sustained pause in conflict in Gaza.

Thousands of protesters in Jerusalem are demanding the release of the hostages, with the Israeli government also working to secure their release.

So far, only a few hostages have been freed, and the situation remains tense.

IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari warns that there may be changes amid the hostage deal with Hamas as the terror group uses “psychological terror” against the Israeli public.

“These will be complex days, nothing is final until it actually happens. And even amid the process, there may be changes at any moment,” he says.

“It is important to note that Hamas is a ruthless enemy. Difficult days are ahead of us, joy mixed with sadness,” he says.

“Hamas will try to use the days of the deal and the pause in fighting to spread fear, disinformation and psychological terror,” Hagari warns.

“We have [overall] goals that must be attained — to demolish Hamas; to bring home the hostages; to organize the borders to ensure that they are secure, and to create deterrence in the region.”
