Blinken: US reviewing Hamas response to hostage deal framework, will discuss with Israel

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says Washington is reviewing a response from Hamas to a framework on a deal that would see Hamas release hostages in exchange for an extended pause in fighting in Gaza and the release of Palestinian security prisoners.

Blinken said at a news conference in Qatar that he would discuss Hamas’s response with Israeli officials when he visits the country tomorrow.

“There’s still a lot of work to be done, but we continue to believe that an agreement is possible, and indeed essential,” Blinken says.
