On Nov 14, CDM/Tsionizm reported the following:
Russian media in Moscow is reporting a 5 day ceasefire will be soon announced in the Gaza conflict, in order to allow for humanitarian aid to be delivered. This will happen concurrently with a prisoner exchange for Hamas prisoners in Israel and Israeli hostages held in Gaza.
A permanent ceasefire will be then possibly be negotiated as well.
This morning the Washington Post verified our early reporting, writing:
Israel and Hamas are close to agreement on a U.S.-brokered deal that would free dozens of women and children held hostage in Gaza in exchange for a five-day pause in fighting, say people familiar with the emerging terms.
The release, which could begin within the next several days — barring last-minute hitches — could lead to the first sustained pause in conflict in Gaza.
A detailed, six-page set of written terms would require all parties to the conflict to freeze combat operations for at least five days while an initial 50 or more hostages are released in smaller batches every 24 hours. It was not immediately clear how many of the 239 people believed to be in captivity in Gaza would be released under the deal. Overhead surveillancewould monitor movement on the ground to police the pause.
As always, stay with CDM to get the real news before the others wake up…
