Israel and Hamas - close to a hostage-release agreement..?
Israel and the united states have rejected the deal to free the hostages from Hamas's grasp. Both nations have stated that although they have not yet been able to come to an agreement to free the hostages, they are making constant efforts. Indeed, according to a story published in the US newspaper Washington Post on Sunday, israel and the US had reached a provisional understanding with Hamas about the release of hostages.
According to the source, a deal to halt hostilities for five days can be reached provided Hamas releases women and children among its captives. America and israel, however, have refuted this purported pact. The media has been spreading false information about deals being reached to rescue the captives, according to Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He continued, "If there is a contract, we are going to show it to the Israeli citizens."
Mediating is qatar - Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, the prime minister of qatar, expressed confidence that israel and Hamas will soon come to an agreement about the hostage release. He claimed that there would only be minor, doable obstacles in the way of concluding this deal. A three-day ceasefire mediated by qatar has been demanded in return for the release of fifty captives, according to a report by the news agency Reuters.
America refuted the agreement's allegations.
Adrienne Watson, a spokesman for the white house National Security Council, stated, "We are working toward an agreement, but we have not reached one yet."
