Will negotiations resume?

Turkish media reported today (Tuesday) that the Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan left for a visit to Qatar, where he will meet with Hamas-led officials to discuss the situation in the Gaza Strip and negotiations that would include a ceasefire and the release of Israeli hostages. It was also reported that Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry will travel to Turkey this weekend for further talks on the issue.

As a reminder, last night it was reported that after weeks of attempts to reach agreements in negotiations with Hamas, the terrorist organization responded with its own proposal to the American mediators, in which it demanded a six-weeks truce and the release of hundreds of terrorists, including serious murderers, in exchange for only 20 hostages - and not 40 as proposed by the Americans.

In addition, according to reports, Hamas has been claiming throughout the last few weeks that it does not have 40 hostages under its control, even though it is known that there are over 130 Israeli hostages, both dead and alive, left in Gaza.
