Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convenes his war cabinet at IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv amid stepped-up efforts to reach a truce deal that would see the release of hostages.

That meeting was followed by a gathering of the larger security cabinet.

No details were released of the decisions made at the war cabinet meeting.

Families of the hostages protested outside calling on Netanyahu and the ministers to do everything possible to reach a deal to bring their loved ones home.

The meeting comes a day after Hamas presented a counter-proposal to the one being mediated by Qatar, the US and Egypt.
