Qatar has successfully negotiated an agreement between Israel and Hamas to extend the four-day truce between them by an additional two days, Doha’s foreign ministry spokesperson tweets.

This means at least ten more Israeli hostages will be released on Tuesday and another ten will be released on Wednesday, with 30 Palestinian prisoners to be freed by Israel on each day as well.

There is no immediate Israeli confirmation of the truce extension but Hamas issues its own statement confirming it, crediting the Qatari and Egyptian mediation efforts.
