The head of Israel's spy agency Mossad, David Barnea, has reportedly traveled to Doha to meet Qatar's Prime Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, signaling a potential breakthrough in ceasefire and hostage negotiations between Israel and Hamas. Israeli officials have cautioned against high expectations, but there is hope that Hamas has accepted a key point of President Biden's proposal for a permanent end to the war. Pressure is mounting on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, both from within his military and from the Israeli public, to consider a ceasefire even if it means keeping Hamas in power for now. The civilian population of Gaza is also growing increasingly desperate for an end to the conflict.
