An Israeli official tells The Washington Post that a deal with Hamas that would see the release of dozens of women and children held by the terror group in the Gaza Strip is nearing fruition, and could be announced within days.

“The general outline of the deal is understood,” the official is quoted as saying.

Under the emerging outline, the hostages would be released in groups, in exchange for Palestinian women and young people incarcerated in Israel, the report says.
