Hamas Announces Extension of Gaza Truce

Hamas confirms an agreement with the Qatari and Egyptian brothers to extend the temporary humanitarian truce for a further two days under the same conditions as the previous truce.

Recall that the Qatar-negotiated deal between Israel and Hamas stipulates that 50 women and children taken hostage by Hamas during its October 7 onslaught must be freed over the course of a four-day ceasefire in exchange for 150 Palestinian female and underage security prisoners and is expected to end today.

A spokesman for Qatar’s Foreign Ministry says Israel and Hamas have agreed to extend truce for two more days.

Meanwhile, Hamas confirmed on Monday that the truce with Israel in Gaza, due to expire on Tuesday morning, would be extended until Thursday 07:00 am after announcing that it was “working on a new list of hostages” to be freed.
