Hamas reportedly willing to extend truce by 4 more days

Hamas is willing to extend its truce with Israel by another four days, AFP reported on Wednesday, citing a source close to the militant group.

The current truce is set to expire on Thursday morning, which means Hamas is open to prolonging it until Monday morning. Earlier, Haaretz reported, citing an official familiar with the ceasefire negotiations, that the Israeli side is not ready to extend the truce beyond Sunday.

Since the truce started on Friday, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad have released a total of 81 hostages, while Israel freed 180 Palestinian prisoners. Later today, another 10 Israeli hostages and 30 Palestinian prisoners are set to be released.
