Day 142 – Israeli Delegation to Visit Qatar

An Israeli delegation is currently waiting for the go-ahead to visit the Arab state for mediated negotiations with Hamas on the framework of a possible deal to release hostages. Following negotiations between Israel and mediator states in Paris over the weekend, the complete proposal was forwarded to Hamas’ leadership for consideration. Should Hamas accept the framework laid in Paris for a potential deal, an Israeli delegation will fly to Qatar to discuss its specifics.

Hizballah has fired non-stop rocket barrages today on northern Israel, including in the Galilee and the Golan. Sirens have sounded all day in Kiryat Shmona and other Israeli towns and cities as Hizballah continues to target civilian areas. During the attacks, at least one rocket landed in a populated area causing damage to agricultural assets.

Sadly, the IDF has released the names of two soldiers and one officer who yesterday fell in combat in the Gaza Strip. All three served in the IDF’s Givati Brigade. May their memories be a blessing. Tragically, the IDF also was forced to determine the death of an additional soldier, who fell in combat on October 7th and whose body is currently being held by Hamas.

Please pray for the immediate release of all the hostages! Please pray for a de-escalation on Israel’s northern front. Lastly, but not least, please pray for comfort for the families of Israel’s fallen.
