Several large-scale military operations are being planned by the IDF in areas where Hamas is thought to be regrouping.

The IDF on Monday urged residents in coastal areas of the Gaza Strip to relocate to the south, signaling that military operations are imminent in those areas.

Hamas on Monday reiterated its willingness to release the remaining hostages, provided Israel halts all military activities in the Gaza Strip and withdraws all its forces from Gaza.

The White House said negotiations for the release of a new batch of hostages held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip were conducted in a constructive manner. John Kirby, spokesman for the US National Security Council, said the negotiations are trying to establish a framework for a new agreement.
