As delegations arrive in Cairo, divisions within the Israeli government appear to be widening, with Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich threatening Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Families of Israeli prisoners wrote a letter to Netanyahu, urging him to reach an agreement and warning him that history will judge him.

Israeli raids targeted all areas in the Gaza Strip, particularly Rafah, Nuseirat and Al-Mughraqa.

According to the Gaza Ministry of Health, 34,654 Palestinians have been killed and 77,908 injured in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.
