The Mossad blew up negotiations in Qatar on Saturday over a hostage deal, following the "impasse. According to a statement from the Prime Minister's Office, Mossad head David Barnea ordered his team in Doha to return to Israel, after "Hamas did not fulfill its part of the agreement, which included the release of all women and children according to a list that was transferred and approved by it."
In a statement, Barnea thanked the CIA director, the Egyptian intelligence minister and the Qatari prime minister for their partnership in the mediation efforts that led to the release of the abductees so far.

, an Israeli source told Walla! Because the negotiations have stopped, because Hamas is not willing to talk about the last phase of abducted women in Gaza who remain under the current framework – and Israel is not willing to discuss new categories before they are released. "If Hamas abides by the agreement and releases them, it will be possible to resume negotiations under fire," the source said.

A senior Israeli official said that the decision to evacuate Mossad staff was made yesterday, and this morning the plane sent by the Mossad arrived to pick them up. This is a Mossad team that has operated a joint operations room with the Qataris in Doha last week since the release of the hostages began. A parallel operations room, which included Qatari intelligence personnel, operated at Mossad headquarters in Israel.

Talks about extending the ceasefire exploded yesterday morning after Hamas refused to release about 10 women it was holding hostage and asked to begin negotiations on the release of older men there. According to three senior Israeli officials, in the hours before the ceasefire collapsed, Hamas did not provide any list of abductees it intended to release. Instead, Hamas conveyed messages through Egyptian and Qatari mediators and offered to start talks about what Israel was willing to give for the release of older men.

Israeli officials said Israel had made it clear to the mediators that it knew Hamas was holding some women hostage and that there would be no discussion about releasing other abductees until all the women were released as stipulated in the agreement. That night, the Mossad chief conveyed a message to Hamas through the mediators that "Israel does not play games" and stressed that if all the women were not released, Israel would renew the fighting. Not long after, Hamas responded with a message of its own by launching a rocket toward Israel, and shortly thereafter the ceasefire collapsed and fighting resumed.

Two senior Israeli officials said that the Israeli assessment is that Hamas understands that the issue of women in captivity is very sensitive for Israel, and therefore the terror group wants to keep some of them in its hands as a bargaining chip for the continuation of the war. Another senior Israeli official said it was believed that Hamas did not want to release the remaining women so that they would not recount the events that took place on October 7 and during their stay in the Gaza Strip.

On the other hand, senior Hamas figure Osama Hamdan claimed in an interview to Al-Arabiya TV that Israel was responsible for the collapse of the negotiations to extend the truce, because it tried to mislead the mediators and included female soldiers on the list of women who demanded their release. Hamdan also claimed that Israel had refused every other offer submitted to it. Hamas said in a statement that Israel had been offered the release of elderly men and the transfer of bodies of prisoners killed during Israeli bombings. The statement also claimed that it was proposed to transfer the bodies of the three Bibas family members to Israel and release the father of the family so that he could attend their funeral.
