Israeli officials say they cannot accept an end to the war, Ynet reports, after a draft of Hamas demands for a hostage deal was publicized by Reuters. The Israeli officials also say they cannot agree to a Hamas demand for 1,500 prisoners to be released, including many serving life sentences.

The Prime Minister’s Office tells The Times of Israel that it does not have a response to Hamas’s demands beyond its statement last night indicating that it was studying the proposal.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken are scheduled to begin their one-on-one meeting at 11:30 a.m. before bringing in their aides.
