Qatar-led talks to free Israeli hostages in Gaza making ‘some headway’ — source

An informed source tells AFP that Qatar is spearheading efforts to negotiate an exchange of prisoners between Israel and Hamas, following the Palestinian group’s shock attack over the Gaza border, during which it abducted more than 100 Israelis, bringing them to Gaza.

Discussions about the release of Israelis kidnapped during the terror group’s incursion into southern Israel on Saturday have made “some headway,” says the source who was briefed on the negotiations. They do not provide additional details.
