Channel 12 reports that Israel has asked the Qatari mediators for Hamas to have a new representative appointed for its final decision-making in the hostage talks, as the terror group’s leader has not been heard from in 11 days.

The inability to reach Sinwar, who Channel 12 says is on the run, has led to slowdowns in the talks.

The report is unsourced and has not been confirmed by officials on either side.
