In the on-again, off-again lead up to a resolution on Saturday, senior Hamas leader Osama Hamdan told a Beirut-based satellite news channel that a disagreement over how much aid Israel was allowing into northern Gaza was one sticking point and the reason for the delay. Another, he said, was Israel’s firing on Palestinians — an apparent reference to an incident on Friday in which Hamas says two people were killed and 30 wounded by Israeli soldiers.

I don’t know if you’ve been following the story of this family, but one of the videos from 10/7 that’s been aired a lot is the mother and her 2 children being captured. Yesterday there was a big event to push for their release. People released orange balloons signifying the red hair of the family members.

Well, I’m appalled by Qatar’s human rights record.
I originally saw this on the AP and it got replaced with another article for some reason, but here is Politicos reprint of the AP story…
