Fascinating development

Unless I'm reading this wrong, this isn't new, just cleared for publication. The wording seems to imply that it's already been implemented as much as is safely possible. Considering the recent report saying between 60-80% of the tunnels are still operational, this isn't very promising news.

Not sure why there's this shock and surprise that it take well more than three months to destroy something secret, subterenian, and scattered that took Hamas 15+ years to build...

Part of the agenda to make it look like Israel has an impossible task and therefore their military campaign is illegitimate and pointless. If you will notice the ones reporting Israel as barely accomplishing anything are the same sources.

It takes time to locate and prepare tunnels for destruction. This method might take longer than explosives.

‏ראש הממשלה בנימין נתניהו נפגש היום (ד') עם נציגי משפחות החטופים, במשרד רה"מ בירושלים.

*ראש הממשלה בפתח הפגישה על המאמצים להבאת מתווה לשחרור חטופינו:*

"אנחנו עושים כל מאמץ. ככל שהמאמץ הזה מקבל פומביות הוא מתרחק, וככל שהמאמץ הזה נשמר בדיסקרטיות יש לו סיכויים גדולים יותר להצליח.

מטבע הדברים ומשני הטעמים הללו אני מוגבל מלשתף אתכם.

אני מבקש שתבינו שאנחנו באמת מחויבים במלוא מובן המילה, זה לא נאמר מן השפה אל החוץ.

זה מאמץ אמיתי. לא פקטיבי ולא למען איזו נראות - אלא מתוך המחויבות שלנו להחזיר את כולם. המחשבה היא על כולם, המאמץ הוא על כולם.

מוקדם מידי להגיד איך הוא יתקיים, אבל זה מאמץ שמתקיים בימים אלו, ברגעים אלה, בשעות אלה ממש".

במפגש היום השתתפו 26 נציגים מ-18 משפחות.

לראש הממשלה התלוו הממונה על החטופים והנעדרים תת אלוף (במיל') גל הירש, ר' המל"ל צחי הנגבי המזכיר הצבאי אלוף אבי גיל ומזכיר הממשלה יוסי פוקס.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met today (Wednesday) with representatives of the families of the abductees, at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem.

*The Prime Minister at the beginning of the meeting on the efforts to bring an outline for the release of our abductees:*

"We are making every effort. The more publicity this effort gets, the more distant it gets, and the more discreet this effort is, the more likely it is to succeed.

Naturally, and for these two reasons, I am limited from sharing with you.

I ask you to understand that we are truly committed in the full sense of the word, this is not said from the tongue to the outside.

It's a real effort. Not effective and not for some visibility - but out of our commitment to return everyone. The thought is about everyone, the effort is about everyone.

It is too early to say how it will take place, but it is an effort that takes place these days, in these moments, in these very hours."

26 representatives from 18 families participated in today's meeting.

The prime minister was accompanied by the person in charge of the abducted and missing people, Lt. Col. Gal Hirsh, Rabbi Tzachi Hanegbi, military secretary Col. Avi Gil, and government secretary Yossi Fox.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

About a hostage deal:
Why doesn’t Israel insist on a sign of life from all hostages before any ceasefire?
Why doesn’t Israel insist on expelling/deporting any released terrorists to a foreign country?
If Hamas can choose which prisoners get released (from a list), why can’t Israel choose from a list too? (Maybe they don’t want this as families will be upset about whomever was prioritized)

When Bibi says he won’t agree to releasing thousands of hostages, that makes me wary that he’s setting things up for hundreds or just under two thosand. Either way, if the deal is only for 40-45 hostages and the remaining soldiers are not a part of the deal, how can he commit not to release thousands if that might be Hamas’ demands next time?
