Amid negotiations over a hostage deal with Hamas, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant held a late night meeting with Mossad director David Barnea.

Gallant’s office releases photos from the meeting, but does not provide any further details.

Last night, Mossad said it had received Hamas’s response to a potential hostage deal and was evaluating it.
