American, Egyptian, Israeli and Qatari negotiators met in Paris to discuss the framework for a long humanitarian pause in the fighting in Gaza. It would allow for the exchange of hostages still being held in Gaza with Palestinian prisoners in Israel. Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, said he would not accept a deal that required Israeli troops to leave Gaza permanently without Israel’s “total victory” over Hamas. Nonetheless Ismail Haniyeh, a senior Hamas leader, said the group was considering the proposal.

Three American soldiers were killed and 40 others wounded in a strike on a base in Jordan known as Tower 22, which supports American operations in Iraq and Syria. Kataib Hizbullah, an Iranian-backed Iraqi militia, is believed to have been responsible. America hinted that its response might come in waves.
