Opposition Leader Yair Lapid receives a security briefing from the prime minister’s military secretary, says Lapid’s office.

The meeting comes hours before the war cabinet, the broader security cabinet and the entire cabinet are each slated to discuss developments related to a hostage deal, expected to include a multi-day ceasefire and the release of at least 150 — and up to 300 according to AFP — Palestinian prisoners held in Israel, including female prisoners and minors.
