Recent reports are showing that the Iranian-backed terrorists Hamas have released two Israeli hostages.
The hostages were handed over to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) who helped orchestrate the return of the former hostages. The release took place at the Rafah crossing, located on Egypt’s border with Gaza.
The Rafah crossing has been a much-talked-about location in the Israel-Hamas war. Furthermore, it is where most of the aid such as food and water is transferred to Gazans.
The former hostages were identified as two Israeli citizens, Nurit Cooper, 79, and Yocheved Lifshitz, 85. The two citizens were among hundreds of captives, many Israeli citizens and some American citizens, who were kidnapped by Hamas.
The horrors occurring by Hamas have been disgusting, disturbing and evil. Hamas has used extremely violent tactics to wage war on Israel in an attack that killed several Israeli citizens.
In the initial attack, Hamas took several Israeli citizens hostage and killed many of the captives. Along with the deaths of the Israeli citizens, the group of terrorists is responsible for the deaths of nine American citizens, as well.
Israeli Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant stated that the country would cut off the electricity, food, water and fuel of the Gaza region. Gallant has stated that the region will be under “complete siege”. The country is requesting precision-guided bombs as well as additional interceptors for the Iron Dome.
Israel has continued to fight back against the terrorists. Moreover, as the war continues, reports state that a high-ranking Hamas official has been killed.
The Hamas commander, Ayman Nofal, is considered the most high-profile member of the organization to be killed in the war.
The Israeli military strike that killed the terrorists occurred in a refugee camp in Bureij located in central Gaza. So far, the Israeli military strikes have killed and wounded thousands located in Gaza.
