A number of similar Hebrew media reports indicate that a deal to release a significant number of children and women being held hostage in Gaza could be reached in a number of days.
The reports suggest that such a deal would be in exchange for a 3-5 day pause in fighting in Gaza, as well as the release of some Palestinian women and minors being held in Israeli jails.
Similar reports were carried by Reuters earlier today citing a Qatari official who said that Hamas had agreed to such a deal, but that Israel had not yet.
There was no immediate Israeli comment, although the publication of similar reports in multiple Hebrew media outlets, presented by their diplomatic correspondents, often indicates a coordinated leak from government officials.
Israeli government and military officials have repeatedly said that the public should not listen to such reports and that if and when there is a concrete deal they will update the public.
