The Hamas terrorist organization in recent months conducted advanced negotiations with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office for the release of the Israeli soldiers and civilians who have been held captive in Gaza for years.

Israeli civilians Avera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed, have been illegally held hostage by Hamas, as have the bodies of IDF soldiers Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul.

According to the report by Kan News, Hamas conducted the negotiations with Netanyahu's office and his military secretary directly and his military secretary since the position of coordinator of prisoners and missing persons had not yet been filled.

According to the report, Hamas conducted the negotiations to hide its intentions to commit a large-scale attack and massacre against Israeli civilians on October 7 from Israel's political and military leadership.

This morning, Simcha Goldin, the father of Hadar Goldin, who was murdered and captured by Hamas when the terrorist organization violated a humanitarian ceasefire during Operation Protective Edge in 2014, spoke with Israeli journalist Dudu Saada.

"Nowadays, when we talk about alive or dead soldiers and civilians, we should start with Oron Shaul, because he was the first to be abandoned during Protective Edge, and then Hadar Goldin and the civilians. Then we go from there. IDF spokesman Brigadier General Hagari said this explicitly. Gal Hirsh too said: Hadar and Oron as soldiers are included in the total number that is continuously reassessed, and the civilians too are included in the number that is continuously reassessed. We need to return those who are in the hands of Hamas."
