Hamas offers potential release of 70 Israeli women and children for five-day ceasefire in Gaza

Hamas could release up to 70 Israeli women and children it is holding hostage if a five-day mutual cease-fire is agreed upon in Gaza, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades spokesperson Abu Ubaydah said on Telegram on Monday.

"Over the past week, Qatari mediators have worked to secure the release of 200 Palestinian children and 25 women in exchange for Israeli hostages in Gaza. Israel demands the release of 100 women and children. We have informed the mediators that we can release up to 70 women and children with a five-day cease-fire," Abu Ubaydah said.

He stated that they demanded that the agreement for prisoner exchange should include conditions such as a ceasefire and humanitarian aid and that Israel "postponed and evaded" this issue.

Giving information about the clashes in the field, Abu Ubaydah noted that Palestinian resistance fighters infiltrated the points where Israeli soldiers entered, targeted tanks and military vehicles, and attacked soldiers.

Ubaydah said that they had completely or partially destroyed 20 Israeli military vehicles in the last 48 hours, stressing that the Israeli commanders' dream of destroying the resistance was only a dream.

He stated that like previous Israeli prime ministers, Yitzhak Shamir and Yitzhak Rabin, Netanyahu's attempt to destroy the resistance was without success.

Saying that all Muslims are responsible for the Palestinian cause, Ubaydah stated that history will never forgive those who remain silent against the massacres against the civilian population.

Meanwhile, the al-Qassam Brigades announced on its Telegram account that it "attacked Tel Aviv with rockets in response to the Israeli army's massacres against civilians in Gaza."

After the attack, warning sirens were activated in Rehovot, Ramle, Lid, Bat Yam, and Rishon LeZiyon in the center of Israel, especially Tel Aviv.


Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that they launched a comprehensive attack against Israel called "Al-Aqsa Flood" on the morning of Oct. 7.

While thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, armed groups entered the settlements in the region. The Israeli army also launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of warplanes. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israel killed 11, 180 people, including 4,506 children, 3,027 women, and 397 elderly people. It injured at least 32,000 people in its attacks on Gaza.

It was reported that 1,200 Israelis, including 324 soldiers, were killed and 5,132 Israelis were wounded in the attacks from Gaza.

The Israeli army hit Damascus and Aleppo airports. As the Middle East is once again turning into a bloodbath, a deadline has been set for nearly 2.5 million Palestinians to leave the blockaded Gaza.

In the occupied West Bank, 106 Palestinians were killed in attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers. In Israel’s attacks on Gaza, 48 journalists were killed.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border since Oct. 8, 55 Hezbollah members and 4 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, were killed. Three Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian were killed in the attacks organized by Lebanon.

Most recently, Israel attacked the Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza, killing civilians.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he was breaking off all contact with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because of Israeli attacks on civilians in the Gaza Strip.
