TEL AVIV – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said there “could be” a potential deal to release some of the 239 hostages believed to be held by Hamas and other groups in Gaza, but he cited the sensitivity of negotiations and declined to provide additional details, according to Times of Israel.اضافة اعلان

“I think the less I say about it, the more I’ll increase the chances that it materializes,” Netanyahu told NBC News on Sunday.

He added that Israel has offered to supply fuel to Gaza City’s Shifa Hospital, which is in dire need of it, but that the offer was rejected.

The premier reaffirmed his stance that military pressure on Hamas is increasing the chances to secure hostage release, a position running counter to American allies’ call for humanitarian pauses as a way to ease their release.
