Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly told a group of the hostages’ families during a meeting today that reports of a Hamas proposal to release their loved ones are false and that the terror group has not put forward any such offer.

However, he reveals, Israel has placed an offer of its own on the table, though he declines to elaborate on it, in order not to harm the negotiations, Channel 12 reports.

According to Channel 13, the deal would be in three stages, with the remaining women and elderly hostages released first, followed by young men, and then soldiers along with the bodies of killed hostages.

The plan would reportedly see Israel release a group of Palestinian security prisoners in addition to extended pauses in the fighting at each stage. Moreover, Israel would agree to change the scope of its presence in Gaza.
