Amid the escalating war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, the Palestinian terror group's military arm, the Al-Qassam Brigades, has proposed a five-day ceasefire with Israel in exchange for the release of up to 70 women and children hostages, Reuters reported. A spokesperson for Al-Qassam Brigades, Abu Ubaida, reportedly said the suggested truce would necessitate a total halt in hostilities, enabling aid distribution in Gaza. However, he accused Israel of "procrastinating and evading" the deal and its possible outcome.
