[Today’s Prayer] “Israel releases 40 hosts and agrees to 6-week ceasefire… “Hamas remains to respond”


There have been reports that Israel has agreed to a six-week ceasefire in the Gaza Strip in exchange for Hamas releasing 40 hostages.


With the recent announcement that progress has been made in the negotiations held in Paris, France, attention is focused on whether the agonizing negotiations will finally be concluded.


On the 25th, ABC News, citing internal sources in Israel, reported that Israel had agreed to a negotiation plan that included Hamas releasing 40 hosts and a six-week ceasefire.


This follows a meeting attended by Israel, the United States, Egypt and Qatar held in Paris, France, and the source said that Israel is awaiting a response from Hamas.


Additionally, Israel is said to be willing to release up to 400 prisoners under this agreement by increasing the ratio of hostages to Palestinian prisoners from 1 to 3 ratio.


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also announced that he would discuss “the next steps in negotiations” at this meeting. In addition, local media reported that the war cabinet agreed to send a delegation to Qatar within a few days for further talks.


So far, there has been no progress in negotiations between Israel and Hamas for a ceasefire and hostage release.


On the 13th, the issue of a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and the release of hosts was discussed in Cairo, Egypt, through mediation between Israel, the United States, Egypt, and Qatar, but ultimately the negotiations collapsed as differences of opinion could not be resolved.


At the time, Prime Minister Netanyahu predicted a hard-line response, saying, “We will not give in to Hamas' absurd demands,” and Hamas also responded by demanding that the Israeli military withdraw from the Gaza Strip.


However, as Hamas is known to be flexible in specific negotiation conditions, expectations have been formed that negotiations may be concluded this time.


Meanwhile, the day before, a large-scale protest took place in Tel Aviv, Israel, calling for the release of hosts and the resignation of the Netanyahu government, and police and protesters clashed, resulting in 21 arrests.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (Corinthians 13:13)

Reports say Israel has agreed to a six-week cease-fire in Gaza in exchange for Hamas releasing 40 hostages.


Many people are suffering beyond words because of the long war, but we praise and thank Yeshua, as the Israelis and Palestinian souls are returning to Yeshua with hearts which became poor.


Lord, would allow the hostages to meet Yeshua in the midst of pain, and let him be released quickly. Now there's no place to escape for Palestinian souls, through dreams and fantasies, would you meet them through all methods.


Let Israel, who tried so hard to keep the law, but did not know Yeshua, know what true love is, and let the Palestinians, who have not been saved from the blindly hanging Islam, know the true love of Yeshua.


Let Israel and Palestine come back to Yeshua and be a nation full of faith, hope and love, so that the true reconciliation between Isaac and Ismael can be made quickly!
