Israeli negotiators arrive in Qatar, fighting ceases, negotiations begin over hostage release. Israel would like to specifically decide which hostages will be released, but so far there has been no information on Hamas's actions regarding the negotiations.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has shown that he absolutely refuses the complete ceasefire that Hamas is seeking, and the gap between the two sides appears to remain wide, making it unclear whether the negotiations will make any progress. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shtayeh of the Palestinian Authority announced his resignation en masse, stating that a political arrangement that takes into account the new reality in the Gaza Strip is necessary.
