Official involved in Hamas talks tells TV Netanyahu’s statements were ‘actual sabotage’

An Israeli source with knowledge of the negotiations with Hamas tells Channel 12 that Netanyahu’s comments yesterday on backing only a “partial” deal “caused damage that will be very difficult to fix and at terrible timing — when all pressure was directed at [Hamas’s Gaza leader Yahya] Sinwar.

“His statement was actual sabotage. It’s difficult to see how we can reach a deal in the near future. It’s ‘game over’ for a deal,” the source said, adding: “He’s giving up on releasing the abducted soldiers and on the chance to try to first bring home the women, female soldiers, and the elderly.”
