Al-Arabiya reported tonight (Saturday) on Egyptian-mediated talks, with the aim of reaching a prisoner exchange deal with Hamas. According to the report, the officials in Cairo demanded concessions from Israel in order to reach the realization of the deal. At the same time, Hamas sought relief in the areas of fishing and the seaport, along with the release of Palestinian prisoners.
Abrah Mengistu and Hisham Shaaban a-Sayed and the bodies of IDF fighters Lt. Hadar Goldin and the late Staff Sergeant Oron Shaul are currently being held in the Gaza Strip. Last year, it was reported in Maariv that officials in the political-security system believe that the corona crisis and its possible consequences for the Gaza Strip are opening a window of opportunity for progress on the issue of prisoners and missing persons.
Maariv has learned that behind this general statement, ideas have already been raised in the political-security system and that significant discussions have taken place with senior members of the defense system.

The main idea is to try, through a humanitarian package to the Gaza Strip and other gestures, to advance the issue of the return of prisoners and missing persons. Under the same view, officials in Israel believe, it is possible to try and promote moves, in the hope that this will allow progress on the issue of prisoners and missing persons as well. It is estimated that this is a window of opportunity, which will be relevant as long as the epidemic does not break out in the Strip.
I hope you are in health and well.
