Israel’s national security adviser, Tzachi Hanegbi, has stated that the release of hostages in the Israel-Hamas truce is set to occur after Friday, with ongoing talks on specific details. The agreement, mediated by Qatar, includes a temporary ceasefire and the release of 150 Palestinian women and children from Israeli jails. The hostages will be released in smaller groups over four days, with a pause in fighting during this period. Israel plans to resume its offensive immediately after the truce’s full implementation. China and the UN Secretary-General welcome the ceasefire, while Qatar’s prime minister hopes it leads to a permanent ceasefire. The Arab League Secretary-General emphasizes the need for a comprehensive political solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on the two-state solution.
