Egyptian TV says ‘intensive efforts’ underway to renew hostage deal, truce talks

A high-level official quoted by Al-Qahera TV says that Egypt was undertaking “intensive efforts” to “resume negotiations” for a hostage deal “in light of the recent American proposition.”

US President Joe Biden on Friday revealed a multi-phase plan for a ceasefire and hostage deal in the Gaza Strip proposed by Israel, saying it was “time for this war to end.”

Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
