DOHA- According to two sources with knowledge of the negotiations, a tentative agreement calls for an immediate ceasefire on the ground and restrictions on Israeli airstrikes in southern Gaza.
In exchange, Islamic Jihad, a distinct Palestinian militant organization, and Hamas would release between 50 and 100 prisoners.
There would be no military personnel, only Israeli civilians and prisoners of other nationalities.
300 Palestinians, including women and children, would be freed from Israeli prisons as part of the proposed deal.
The White House refused to provide more information because doing so might jeopardize a successful outcome, despite stating that the negotiations were in their “endgame” stage.
Separately, the Red Cross International Committee announced on Monday that its president had visited Qatar to meet with Hamas Haniyeh” to advance humanitarian issues related to the armed conflict in Israel and Gaza.”
The Geneva-based organization stated in a statement that it was still “advocating for the urgent protection of all combatants and the alleviation of the dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza strip.”
Additionally, it claimed to have” consistently called for the immediate release of hostages.”
