Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu releases a video statement stressing that “we are working to attain another framework to release our captives, but I stress — not at any price.”

“We have red lines,” he continues, “including: we will not end the war, we will not pull the IDF out of the Strip, we will not release thousands of terrorists.”

The prime minister says that in addition to working to get the hostages out, Israel is working toward its other goals in the war — “the elimination of Hamas and to ensure that Gaza never again represents a threat.”

“We are working on all three of them together and we will not give up on any of them.”
