Israel and Hamas agreed on Monday to extend their breakable truce for two more days, an act of continued cooperation that could allow for additional aid to flow into Gaza and the release of more hostages, prisoners and detainees than initially expected. Now in this extended period 20-40 more hostages are likely to be released. The extension, coming as the initial four-day truce was set to terminate on Tuesday, was announced by Qatari mediators a few hours before 11 more Israeli hostages, including 3 year old twins were released into the custody of Israel’s military late Monday.
