Truth Live News gathered that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to release 39 Palestinians, reciprocated by Hamas releasing some Israeli hostages, with the IDF informing families.

The mediation team has received praise for bringing both sides to the negotiating table. Despite the optimism, an Israeli spokesperson warns that the hostage deal’s stability depends on Hamas’s sincerity.
