Senior Israeli official tells TV network sides ‘very close’ to hostage deal

Channel 12 news cites a senior Israeli official saying “we are very close to a deal” for the release of some hostages in Gaza.

Noting that there are still technical issues to resolve, the official says there is an agreement that at least 50 people will be freed, while dozens more could be released in exchange for extending a ceasefire beyond the initial few days.

Those set to be released are expected to be children, their mothers and other women, the report says.
