“We have received a reply from Hamas to the general framework of the [hostage] agreement,” Thani says. “The reply includes some comments, but in general it is positive.”

Speaking at a press conference alongside visiting US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the Qatari premier says Hamas’s response has been delivered to Israel.

He declines to elaborate further but says Qatar is “optimistic.”
