Hamas frees hostages amid talks on possible extension of Gaza ceasefire

On Tuesday, Hamas released an additional 10 Israeli hostages and two Thai nationals as part of an agreed-upon extension of the pause in fighting with Israel in Gaza. CIA director Bill Burns is in talks with Mossad director David Barnea, Egyptian intelligence chief Abbas Kamel, and Qatari Prime Minister Mohammed Bin Abdul Rahman al-Thani to potentially extend the pause further if more hostages are released by Hamas. The meeting involves efforts by Qatar, Egypt, the U.S., and Israel to maximize the current deal, possibly extending the pause by up to three more days, releasing an additional 10 hostages per day, with a goal of reaching a total of 100 released Israeli hostages.
