Israel ‘studying details’ of Hamas response, ‘if and how’ to move on negotiations – report

Sources familiar with the hostage release talks tell Channel 12 that Hamas delivered a “detailed” response to the Paris outline for a release of the abductees taken on October 7 and held by Hamas in Gaza

“It is a detailed document with reference to all sections of the proposed outline. We are studying the details and checking if and how we can move towards negotiations,” the unnamed sources say.

Hamas is demanding an end to the war as part of the negotiations, in addition to the release of Palestinian security prisoners, and the rebuilding of the enclave — non-starter conditions for Israel.

A senior Israeli official tells Channel 12 that “the meaning of Hamas’s answer is a refusal to deal.”
