A German mediator who was involved in the release of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit in 2011 is participating in the current talks.
When the committee started working, it decided that its conclusions will be published only after Schalit (who was kidnapped in 2006 and released in 2011) will be released from Hamas captivity.
Sinwar said that the indirect negotiations between Hamas and Israel over a prisoner exchange were suspended after the start of the political crisis in Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: "No change in policy of targeted assassinations."
Yaron Blum claimed that Hamas hostages Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed had crossed the border several times and had been returned to Israel, but he was forced to apologize regarding Mengistu.
"They've been telling me what they won't do for five years, but they don't tell me what they are doing."
"We're used to decisions being used against us. This time we want exactly the opposite."
"Even after this meeting, it's not clear to us why Netanyahu doesn't make the return of the boys a condition in all the talks for rehabilitating and upgrading Gaza that are happening every day.”
The post and video were released in the midst of ceasefire negotiations between Hamas and Israel.
