Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says in a primetime press conference that his heart is with the families of the some 240 hostages held in Gaza.

“We are marching with you, I am marching with you, all of the people of Israel are marching with you,” he says, saying that he invited families of hostages to meet with the war cabinet this week.

Netanyahu says there are “a lot of incorrect reports” about imminent hostage deals to free some or all of those held, adding that “as of now there is no deal,” and saying that if one emerges the Israeli public will be updated.
