Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar has given his input on the latest proposal for a hostages-for-truce deal with Israel, Arab mediators tell The Wall Street Journal.

According to the report, Sinwar said yesterday via Hamas representatives that the offer is the closest yet to meeting the terror group’s demands, though he raised several caveats.

The mediators are also quoted saying that Hamas is expected to soon put out a counterproposal, as it continues to demand an end to the war started by its October 7 atrocities.
