Source says Israel willing to reassess Rafah op as part of hostage deal but not end war

A source tells the Ynet news site that Israel would be willing to reconsider its planned operation in Rafah if there’s “a real offer” for hostages-for-truce agreement with Hamas, but won’t “compromise on ending the war.”

The official’s comments come amid Hebrew media reports that Israel has dropped its previous demand that at least 40 hostages be released as part of any agreement.
