Israel agreed to the American compromise proposal presented to the parties during the talks in Doha for a hostage deal with Hamas, a senior Israeli source said on Sunday.

Israel even agreed to double the figures in some categories to which it had already positively responded in the original "Paris Framework," under which Israel agreed to release 400 prisoners while Hamas demanded 800-900. 

Israel is considering the American proposal and is willing to release 700 prisoners in exchange for the freedom of 40 hostages held by Hamas.
