According to a New York Post report, Qatari mediators are pushing for a 3-day truce between Israeli and Hamas forces in exchange for the release of 50 hostages currently being held by Hamas in Gaza.
From The New York Post:
The deal, under discussion, which has been coordinated with the U.S., would also see Israel release some Palestinian women and children from Israeli jails and increase the amount of humanitarian aid allowed into Gaza, the official said.
It would mark the biggest release of hostages held by Hamas since the Palestinian terrorist group burst over the Gaza border, attacked parts of Israel, and took hostages into the enclave.
Hamas has agreed to the general outlines of this deal, but Israel has not and it is still negotiating the details, the official said.
It is not known how many Palestinian women and children Israel would release from its jails as part of the agreement under discussion.
The deal would also require Hamas to provide a list of all hostages still alive and being held captive.
