Senior Israeli officials said that after three days of talks in Qatar, the Israeli delegation returned to Israel last night without answers.

According to an Israeli official: “The mediators promised that Hamas would provide numbers, but that did not happen.”

Israeli Channel 12 revealed that an Israeli delegation visited Cairo this week to discuss the details of a possible hostage deal with Egyptian officials.

According to the report, the Israeli delegation presented Egypt with a list of names of Palestinian security prisoners whom Israel is not prepared to release if an agreement is reached with Hamas.

The report adds that the delegation will return to Cairo next week for additional talks.

Israel insists on the release of all hostages taken in the October 7 attacks, starting with all the women.

Under a week-long truce in November, 80 Israeli hostages were released in exchange for 240 Palestinian detainees from Israeli prisons.
