The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, is visiting Paris this Tuesday, February 27. A two-day state visit during which there will be a lot of talk about Gaza.

Negotiations around a ceasefire in Gaza and the release of hostages have accelerated in recent days. There appears to be a window of opportunity between now and the start of Ramadan, around March 10. But the contours remain vague. How long for this truce or ceasefire? How many releases?
