Pause In Israel-Hamas Fighting Under Discussion

via Sky News Australia

Negotiations between Israel and Hamas for a potential cease-fire and hostage release are in their final stages.

The deal may involve a temporary end to fighting in Gaza for up to five days and the release of hostages, mainly women and children, in exchange for Palestinian prisoners held in Israel.

The current negotiation is focused on a 3-to-1 ratio for the hostage release-prisoner swap.

“It does appear the final details are being discussed toward a cease-fire that would end fighting in Gaza for up to five days and include the release of some hostages,” Fox News’ Trey Yingst wrote.

“We understand, according to Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, that a deal is approaching,” he added.

“Reports indicate it would include the release of dozens of Israeli and foreign citizen hostages.”

“The hostages are expected to be only women and children and would be exchanged for [Palestinian] prisoners being held in Israel.”

“It will only be a temporary ceasfire. They need that time out and, as a result, we believe the probability of their agreeing to release our people has gone up,” Israeli senior advisor Mark Regev said.

“Once again, it’s not done until it’s done. I cannot tell you it’s going to happen but I believe the probability of it happening has gone up.”

Both Israeli and foreign hostages are expected to be released.
