No War Halt for Hostages, Netanyahu Adviser Tells Families.

Israel’s National Security Adviser, Tzachi Hanegbi, informed families of hostages held in Gaza that the government will not cease the war in exchange for the release of all hostages taken since October 7. This stance was reported by Channel 12 and covered by the Times of Israel.

Hanegbi conveyed optimism about a “stage one” deal to return hostages classified as humanitarian, which could be completed within months rather than years. However, he emphasized that the government would not stop military operations to secure the release of all hostages, as ongoing fighting is deemed necessary to prevent future attacks like the one on October 7.
