Benjamin Netanyahu This Monday he defended his strategy of maintaining military pressure on Loop as a way to free the hostages, after the Israeli Army managed to free two captives in an operation in Rafah.
“I salute our brave warriors for the bold action that led to liberation” of the two hostages, said the Israeli prime minister. “Only the continuation of military pressure, until complete victory, will result in the release of our hostages,” the president added in a statement.
The Israel Defense Forces launched a special operation early this Monday in the south of the enclave, in which they managed to rescue two of the terrorist group’s prisoners. In a statement the Army reported that “in a joint operation of the IDF (Army), ISA (Shin Bet security agency) and Israeli police at night in Rafahtwo Israeli hostages were rescued, Fernando Simon Marman (60 years) and Louis Har (70)”.
He noted that they were kidnapped “by the terrorist organization Hamas on October 7 at Kibbutz Nir Yitzhak”.
“They are both in good medical conditions and were taken to the hospital Sheba Tel Hashomer for evaluation,” the statement added.
The text concludes with a new commitment by the security forces to continue operating with all means to return the hostages home.
