Hostages Released

As noted in the video, the two have reached a deal to release 50 hostages. Israel claimed that they agreed to a deal with Hamas to release 5o civilian hostages held by militants in Gaza. This would be done in exchange for the release of Palestinian prisoners from the Israeli jail. There would also be a series of pauses in the fight.

Israel and Hamas have also allegedly agreed to pause fighting for four or more days in Gaza. Israel will allow additional deliveries of aid, which include fuel into Gaza, via a border crossing with Egypt. As noted by the TikToker, in exchange for 50 hostages, Israel will release 150 Palestinian women and minors held in Israeli prison.

As mentioned in this article, this is the first sign that a truce in this seven-week-old war was reached after mediation by Qatar and Egypt. The article also notes that Israel is expected to recover the first hostages this Thursday. Allegedly, to date, Hamas has only released four captives before this temporary ceasefire.
