Hostage deal to see release of 30 kids, 8 mothers, 12 women from Gaza — report

Channel 12 reports that the developing hostage deal will see the release of 30 children, eight mothers and 12 women held by Hamas in Gaza.

Hamas is claiming it cannot immediately locate some 10 additional children taken from Israel during the shock October 7 attacks.

Hamas has said it has 210 of the about 240 hostages abducted last month, which includes about 40 children. Islamic Jihad is said to be holding many of the remaining hostages.

Israel believes Hamas may prove able to locate and release up to 30 more Israeli women and children.

Earlier, a government source said the hostage deal will include a second stage by which Hamas will act to locate women and children held by other terror factions in Gaza ahead of their possible release.
