Israel and Hamas Nearing Deal to Free Hostages, Says US Ambassador

The Israeli ambassador to the US, Michael Herzog, expressed hope for a deal with Hamas to release hostages soon. About 240 people were taken hostage during October attacks, and Qatar, mediating the talks, also sees a deal in reach.

Reports suggest a potential agreement involving a pause in fighting for the release of women and children. Despite ongoing efforts, the US has not confirmed details, and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has ruled out a full ceasefire.

Qatar has played a key role in negotiations, securing the release of four individuals. Protests in Israel call for prioritizing hostage release, criticizing Netanyahu’s actions.
