Egypt’s Al-Qahera news channel reported that efforts to broker a truce between Israel and Hamas are set to resume in Cairo. The resumption of negotiations follows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent approval for fresh talks. The news channel disclosed the forthcoming talks, hinting at renewed efforts to broker peace amid the ongoing Israeli attacks.

Previous rounds of negotiations, mediated by Egypt, Qatar, and the US, have failed to yield a sustainable agreement, underscoring the complexity of the conflict and the challenges in finding common ground between the warring parties.

Tens of thousands of Israelis flooded the streets of Tel Aviv to protest the Netanyahu government, demanding immediate action for the release of captives.

Meanwhile, the Gaza health ministry reported that 107 patients, including 30 with disabilities, are trapped inside al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, with Israeli military operations hindering evacuation efforts. Similar operations are reported in hospitals in the southern city of Khan Yunis, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis and adding to the mounting casualties.

Since 7 October, Israeli attacks have killed at least 32,705 Palestinians and wounded 75,190 others.
