Israel Hamas War: Israel and Hamas are considering extending the ceasefire on the last day of the ceasefire. Another mortgage swap is also planned. This ceasefire was reached with the mediation of Qatar and America. International mediators were pressing for an extension of the ceasefire in Gaza. Because of this, the deadliest Israeli-Palestinian violence in recent decades has temporarily stopped. But this ceasefire is ending after Monday.
Israel made this big announcement
Israel has said it will extend the ceasefire by one day for every 10 additional hostages released. On the other hand, Hamas has also said that the ceasefire, which came into effect on Friday after several weeks of indirect talks mediated by the United States, Qatar and Egypt, is expected to extend further. But Israel also says it is committed to crushing Hamas’s military capabilities and ending its 16-year rule over Gaza. This would likely mean expanding its ground offensive from devastated northern Gaza to the south, where hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have taken refuge in UN shelters. Despite the pace of aid distribution under the ceasefire, serious conditions remain.
Third release of hostages and prisoners on Sunday
Meanwhile, on Sunday, Hamas freed 17 more hostages, including 14 Israelis, in the third exchange as part of a four-day ceasefire. In return, Israel released 39 Palestinian prisoners. The hospital said most of the hostages appeared to be physically fine, but 84-year-old Elma Avraham was taken to Israel’s Soroka Medical Center in life-threatening condition due to inadequate care. Those released on Sunday included nine children and three Thai citizens.
temporary ceasefire for four days
There has been a 4-day ceasefire between the war between Israel and Hamas. This ceasefire was reached with the mediation of Qatar and America. Under this agreement, hostages and prisoners are to be released from both sides. During this time, humanitarian aid including fuel is also entering the Gaza Strip.
Hamas had taken 240 people hostage
Hamas launched a major attack on Israel on October 7 and Hamas commandos took 240 hostages with them. Israel has been enraged since then. Israel is continuously attacking Gaza through air strikes and ground attacks. Meanwhile, a ceasefire has been reached with the mediation of Qatar and America. Under this, Hamas and Israel will release hostages and prisoners. Countries like Qatar and America were continuously putting pressure on this deal because their own people are also hostages of Hamas.
