Israelis rescued or released from captivity, In a massive airstrike initiated by Israel from Sunday night to Monday, Israel destroyed 67 civilian homes in the southern Gaza city of Rafah, killing women and children among them. In an effort to rescue captives from the Gaza Strip, Israel describes the operation as a rescue operation.

An operation was conducted to rescue two Israeli captives – Fernando Simon Marman, 60, and Louis Har, 70 – who were identified as being 60 and 70 years of age. Hamas fighters captured them on the 7th of October from Kibbutz Nir Yitzhak by a group of Hamas fighters.

There are more than 28,000 Palestinians who have been killed in the Gaza War, mostly women and children, in which Israel has identified the rescue of captives as a key objective of the war.

Although there were a few cases of civilians being released as a result of diplomatic negotiations, and during a brief truce, there were far more civilians released than those that were rescued through military interventions. A number of the captives have also died as a result of Israel’s own military operations.

When did October 7’s captives take place?

Hamas’s military wing, the Qassam Brigades, announced at the time, that they had taken 200 to 250 hostages in the Gaza Strip.

A total of 240 people are believed to be held captive by the Palestinians, a number that includes Israeli soldiers, civilians, and foreigners. There is a “substantial” number of military officers and contractors held captive by the Israeli army, according to a spokesperson for the army, Daniel Hagari.

There is an appeal by Hamas’ leader Mousa Abu Marzouk to examine their original nationalities with the hope that this will save them from having their lives taken away from them due to their fight for Hamas.” he said.

Have any captives been rescued or released?

A total of four captives, including two women and two children, were released by Hamas in the middle of October. Judith Raanan, 59, and her daughter Natalie Raanan, 17, were released from prison on October 20. They were both US citizens. Two Israeli women who had been imprisoned for nearly a decade have been freed – Nurit Cooper, 79, and Yocheved Lifshitz, 85.

The Israeli army conducted a ground operation to free Private Ori Megidish from his captivity at the end of October.

The truce that ended on November 30 saw Hamas release 105 captives and Israel release 240 Palestinian prisoners as a result of the six-day truce that lasted six days. Among those who were released were not only Filipinos, but also dual Israeli-Russian and Thai citizens – three of whom were dual citizens.

Has anyone been killed among the captives?

There has been a death toll of 50 captives reported by the Qassam Brigades after Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip. During the time since the captives were taken to Gaza, Israeli intelligence officers estimate that 30 of the captives have died.

A mistaken shooting that occurred in the Shujayea neighborhood of Gaza City on December 16, led to the deaths of three Israeli captives. A white flag was attached to the captives’ stick and the message read “SOS” and “Help, three hostages” in Hebrew and was written on the flag. Upon their arrest, it was discovered that they were identified as Yotam Haim Samer, Fouad Al-Talalka and Alon Lulu Shamriz.

The same day, hundreds of people took to the streets in Tel Aviv, blocking major streets and commercial centers in the city as a protest against the murder of the three captives.

A statement from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “This is an unbearable tragedy, and we all grieve for their loss this evening,” after hearing the news.

Are Israel’s rescue operations public?

It was reported on Sunday that Netanyahu was asked how many of the 132 remaining captives were still alive. The question was asked on the US TV channel. We are going to do our best to make sure that we get back all those who are alive and, honest-to-god, even the bodies of those who have passed away, and we are going to do all we can to get all those who are alive back.

During the operation that liberated Marman and Har that night, which resulted in the death of 100 Palestinian civilians, Netanyahu declared that the release of all the hostages would only be possible if we continued to apply military pressure until we reached victory.

The rest of the captives have been rejected by him as a result of negotiations with Hamas.

However, despite the fact that Israeli and Hamas officials are currently holding talks for another truce and the release of captives, it is not clear what the terms of the talks in Cairo are or what they will be.

The Hamas militant group offered Israel a three-phase truce last week, but Israel rejected it.

There has been an increase in international pressure since then against Israel’s decision to launch a ground and aerial campaign in Rafah in the midst of a four-month bombardment by Israel and its ground operation in other parts of Gaza, most of whose residents were forced to flee their homes.

The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, and the high ranking officials of the United Nations, including UN chief Antonio Guterres, have warned against the offensive. Israel has an “obligation” to provide protection in Rafah to its civilian citizens, according to the White House.

Biden, who met Jordan’s King Abdullah at the White House on Monday after the meeting, said “Only a credible plan for ensuring the safety and support of more than one million people sheltering there could allow a major military operation in Rafah to take place,” said Biden.
