Israeli delegation heading to Cairo to discuss hostage deal — report

An Israeli delegation is expected to land in Cairo today to advance talks for a temporary truce and hostage release, Lebanon’s Al-Akhbar news outlet reports.

Citing unnamed Egyptian sources, the report from the Hezbollah-linked outlet says the delegation is carrying a list of Palestinian security prisoners Israel refuses to release as part of a potential agreement.

The report says the Israeli team will demand to see a list of the hostages that will be freed in a deal that will also include a temporary ceasefire.
