Israel will send delegation to Cairo if there’s ‘positive movement’ on deal – official

A top Israeli official says Israel will send a delegation to Cairo for talks on a Gaza truce only if it sees a “positive movement” on a framework for a hostage deal.

“What we are looking at is an agreement over a framework for a possible hostage deal,” the official tells AFP on condition of anonymity.

“Tough and long negotiations are expected for an actual deal.”

“The indication for positive movement over a framework would be if we send a delegation led by Mossad chief to Cairo,” says the official, who speaks in English.
