The deal will see 50 hostages released during a four-day ceasefire.

Israel’s Cabinet approved a Qatari-brokered ceasefire and hostage-release deal with the Hamas terrorist group early Wednesday morning, the Israeli government announced.

The deal will see at least 50 of the 240 hostages, exclusively women and children, released over four days, “during which there will be a lull in the fighting.” The Israeli government said that an additional “day of respite” will be added for every 10 hostages released.

“The Israeli government, the IDF, and the security forces will continue the war in order to return all the hostages, to complete the elimination of Hamas, and to ensure that Gaza does not renew any threat to the State of Israel,” the statement added.
