The Israeli war cabinet has stated that any deal demanding a complete halt to the fighting in Gaza will not be accepted, Al-Ghad reported.

Officials in Tel Aviv have also mentioned that the previous negotiation outline of three Palestinian prisoners per captive remains open for implementation, but they claim that Hamas has yet to provide a list of captives' names to be released to Egypt or Qatar.

It adds that Tel Aviv is interested in another exchange for releasing captives and is pressing for favorable conditions for the deal to materialize.
