Lapid: 'There is a small window of opportunity now for a hostage deal'

Opposition Leader Yair Lapid says there is a small window of opportunity for Israel to negotiate a deal to free its hostages in Gaza, based on recent conversations with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and French President Emmanuel Macron. Lapid argues that the Israeli government should not ignore any chance, even the smallest, of making a hostage deal. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejects Hamas's ceasefire plan and believes military pressure is necessary to secure the release of the Israelis held captive. Lapid emphasizes the need for victory over Hamas but also highlights the moral obligation to bring the hostages home.
