Egypt pressured Israel to send representatives to discuss a hostage deal while Hamas was in Cairo, Channel 12 reports, but Israel refused to do so.

An Israeli official tells The Times of Israel that “the main target now is to create pressure from the Americans and other countries on Qatar, and from there on Hamas, in addition to the military pressure to bring them down from their delusional demands.”
