A senior Hamas official insisted late Saturday that the terror group would "not agree under any circumstances" to a truce in Gaza that did not explicitly include a complete end to the war. 

The official, who asked not to be named, also accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of "personally hindering" efforts to reach a truce agreement due to "personal interests".

Saudi news outlet Al Hadath reported that Hamas has agreed to release 33 Israeli hostages during the first phase of the hostage release deal, a term it contested during earlier talks.
