“This afternoon we have to make a difficult decision, but it is the right decision,” he said before an emergency government meeting, without specifying what type of decision he was referring to.
However, according to Netanyahu, all security officials fully support this decision, based on their professional assessments.
He explained that according to these estimates, Israeli troops will remain safe during the ceasefire and their combat capabilities will improve during these days.
Previously, Al-Jazeera reported that the Israeli government would approve the hostage deal. According to him, Hamas must release about 50 hostages in exchange for a four-day ceasefire and the release of hundreds of Palestinian women and minors from Israeli prisons.
