# Hamas’s chief says a truce agreement with Israel is imminent. Ismail Haniyeh’s spokesperson told Reuters the militant group has delivered its response to Qatari mediators, without giving any details. According to other sources, negotiations are centred on how long the truce would last, arrangements for the delivery of aid to Gaza, and the exchange of Israeli hostages for Palestinian prisoners in Israel.
