Israel Announces More Hostages Freed by Hamas as Temporary Truce Holds for 7th Consecutive Day

The Israeli government has confirmed that six additional hostages have been released by Hamas, the ruling militant group in the Gaza Strip. The hostages, including two minors and six females, have been transferred to the Red Cross and are on their way back to Israel via Egypt.

Among the released hostages are individuals with dual nationalities, such as an Israeli-Mexican, Israeli-Russian, and an Israeli-Uruguayan. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office has identified the six prisoners as Shani Goren, Nili Margalit, Ilana Gritzewsky Kimchi, Sapir Cohen, Bilal Ziyadne, and Aisha Ziyadne.

These include Bedouin siblings Bilal and Aisha Ziyadne, who were kidnapped from Kibbutz Holit while working with their father and older brother. The father and older brother are still being held captive by Hamas.

As part of the agreement, Israel has also released 30 Palestinian prisoners, including 23 minors and seven women. Earlier in the day, two Israelis, Mia Schem and Amit Soussana, were released after being held captive for 55 days in Gaza.

Mia Schem, who appeared in a propaganda video released by Hamas in October, has been visibly injured. The temporary cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, which began last week, has now entered its seventh day after an agreement to extend it for at least 24 more hours was reached.

The cease-fire, brokered by Qatar, Egypt, and the United States, has resulted in the release of hostages and prisoners on both sides. Hamas has expressed its desire for a permanent cease-fire and has indicated that it may release male hostages, including Israeli soldiers, if the truce is further extended.

The United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken, during his visit to the region, has expressed hope for the extension of the cease-fire and the release of more hostages. Despite the temporary peace, violence has erupted in other parts of the region, including Jerusalem and the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

 Three people were killed in a shooting at a bus stop in Jerusalem, with Israeli officials blaming Hamas for the attack. Hamas has claimed responsibility for the incident, stating it was a response to Israel’s occupation and the mistreatment of prisoners in Israeli jails.
