Security official says Israeli delegation will only head to Cairo when Hamas responds to hostage deal outline

A security official tells the Ynet news site that an Israeli delegation will not head to Cairo until Hamas responds to a proposed deal for a temporary truce and hostage deal.

The official denies reports that envoys were meant to fly out to Egypt for talks tomorrow.

Egyptian security sources tell Reuters that the parties agree on the duration of the Gaza truce and hostage and prisoner releases, adding that the completion of the deal still requires an agreement on the withdrawal of Israeli forces from northern Gaza and a return of its residents.
