Israeli Occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prevented a security delegation from traveling to Cairo for negotiations on a prisoner exchange deal.

On the other hand, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on all parties, in particular Hamas, to promptly complete the prisoner exchange and ceasefire in order to protect Palestinians. 

Abbas said he held everyone responsible for placing any obstacles on any side to disrupt the prisoners' deal.

He called on Washington and the Arab countries to work seriously to complete the prisoners exchange deal to halt the ongoing war on the Gaza Strip. 

Meanwhile, the Israeli Occupation continues its aggression against the Gaza Strip for the 131st day, with the latest tally of martyrs reaching 28,576 martyrs and injuring 68,291 since 7 October.
