A proposal to swap Israeli hostages held in Gaza for Palestinian prisoners has been sent to Hamas, according to reports.

It follows several days of multinational talks in Paris involving representatives from Israel, the United States, Egypt, and Qatar which have tried to map out the basic contours of a deal for a temporary ceasefire.

The proposal states that all Israeli women, children under 19, elderly and sick hostages should be released in exchange for a number of Palestinian prisoners, a senior source has told the Reuters news agency.

The proposal includes a commitment to allow the entry of 500 aid trucks daily into Gaza and the provision of thousands of tents and caravans.
