Gaza and Israel prepare for a four day ceasefire and release of 13 hostages

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

After almost seven weeks of Israeli bombardment, a four-day ceasefire is due to begin in Gaza at 7am tomorrow.

Qatar says Israel and Hamas have exchanged lists of hostages and prisoners to be freed.

And Hamas – which the UK has designated a terrorist group – will release a first group of 13 women and children at 4pm.

Last-minute negotiations delayed the truce, meaning another day of bombing in Gaza.
