While exact details are uncertain, Israeli officials say an agreement to release some of the Israeli hostages in exchange for Palestinian prisoners and a temporary ceasefire might take place very soon, reports The Jerusalem Post:

The proposed agreement involved the release of approximately 50 Israeli children and their mothers in exchange for a four-day ceasefire. It will take place in a 3:1 format, three Palestinian prisoners for each hostage.

Under the terms of the deal, Hamas has committed to locating the remaining children and mothers. In return, Israel has agreed to release women and minors from Israeli prisons who were involved in acts of terror.
