Katzir was kidnapped from Nir Oz, where he worked as a farmer. He is the son of Hanna, 76, who was also released in a hostage deal in November and has been hospitalized in critical condition since.
As of now, there are no significant ongoing negotiations for an agreement for the release of the hostages. Qatar's Prime Minister Mohammed Al-Thani acknowledged on Sunday that the assassination of Hamas deputy leader Selah Al-Arouri has affected Doha's efforts to broker talks between Hamas and Israel. Nonetheless, he affirmed that Qatar is persistently working to mediate dialogue between the two sides.
