Negotiations are underway to free Hostages taken by Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza, with Qatar mediating between Israel and Hamas. The US is actively involved in the talks, with President Biden's top Mideast adviser, Brett McGurk, heading to Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar. President Biden spoke to the Qatari leader, expressing his appreciation for their efforts to secure the release of hostages. Hamas has released only four hostages so far, and Israel is seeking a full accounting of the hostages. There are discussions of a potential prisoner swap, but a ceasefire would be necessary for any future hostage release.
