50 hostages to go free in Israel-Hamas ceasefire

via Hindustan Times

Israel and Hamas have agreed to a ceasefire in Gaza for at least four days, allowing aid to enter and freeing hostages in exchange for Palestinian prisoners.

The truce could be extended and aims to ease the suffering of civilians in Gaza.

However, fighting continued before the truce began.

The deal is a step toward peace in the 75-year-old Palestinian-Israeli conflict, but both sides stated that it would not halt their broader missions.

Qatar’s chief negotiator, Mohammed Al-Khulaifi said that there would be “no attack whatsoever. No military movements, no expansion, nothing.”

Adding that Qatar hopes “will be a seed to a bigger agreement and a permanent cease of fire…That’s our intention.”

Riyad al-Maliki, a Palestinian Authority official in the West Bank said, “Only this morning, from the Qadoura family in Jabalia, 52 people have been wiped out completely, killed.”

“I have the list of the names, 52 of them, they were wiped out completely from grandfather to grandchildren,” expressed the foreign minister.

Israel Defense Forces released a video of fighting, and posted that “forces continue to operate within the (Gaza) Strip’s territory to destroy terrorist infrastructure, eliminate terrorists and locate weaponry”.

Netanyahu released a statement saying, “We are at war and we will continue the war until we achieve all our goals. To destroy Hamas, return all our hostages and ensure that no entity in Gaza can threaten Israel.”

Hamas wrote in a statement, “As we announce the striking of a truce agreement, we affirm that our fingers remain on the trigger, and our victorious fighters will remain on the look-out to defend our people and defeat the occupation.”

International leaders welcomed the agreement, including U.S. President Joe Biden and Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud.
