Israel: Hamas Leader Sinwar Does Not Want a Hostage Deal

(Times of Israel) Jacob Magid - Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar "is dragging his feet and does not want a deal, despite Israel's tremendous flexibility," a senior Israeli official told the Times of Israel on Friday. "No pressure [on Hamas] is being jointly applied by the Qatar-led mediators. Qatar has refrained from deporting the Hamas leaders it hosts, nor has it closed their bank accounts, which hold hundreds of millions of dollars used for terrorism. Sinwar does not want a deal. He is not interested in the suffering of his people in Gaza. He is waiting for tensions to increase and for there to be further escalation."
