Hostages held captive in Gaza since the October 7 attack have started to be released. The temporary ceasefire agreement between Hamas and Israel paved the way for the liberation of these innocent individuals.

Reports indicate that the first group of hostages, including Israelis, Thai citizens, and a Filipino citizen, was released on Friday. Subsequently, more hostages were freed on Saturday and Sunday, bringing hope to their families and loved ones.

On Sunday, the terrorists released 17 more hostages to the International Red Cross.

Although details are still being confirmed, early reports state that they include three foreign nationals and 14 additional Israelis, one of whom is also an American citizen.

“Based on information that was received from the Red Cross, 14 Israeli hostages and three foreign hostages have been transferred to the Red Cross,” an IDF spokesman said in a statement.
