Gaza prepares for Israeli military expansion as talks of a hostage deal progress. The Israeli army plans to target additional neighborhoods in the Gaza Strip, where the ongoing offensive has resulted in thousands of deaths. Talks of a deal to release hostages in exchange for a pause in fighting are progressing, with Qatari mediators reporting minor practical challenges. The Israeli military has presented evidence that Hamas gunmen used Al-Shifa hospital to hide foreign hostages and mask underground tunnels. International pressure is mounting on Israel to justify the high death toll in the war against Hamas.
