Reports claim some hostages with foreign citizenship could be released soon

The New York Times, citing a senior Israeli military official, says talks are underway for the release of some 50 dual-nationals from Hamas captivity, “based on conversations between the United States and Qatar.”

Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed, who heads the Armed Services Committee, tells the Times from Cairo that Israel should delay a ground invasion to allow for the hostage negotiations.

“There are so many factors, rushing into this probably is not the best approach,” he says.

Channel 12 news, citing an Israeli source, says a deal could be sealed soon.
