The bulk of hostages taken by Hamas terrorists are still alive, according to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
“The majority of the hostages are alive. There were also dead bodies that were taken… to the Gaza Strip,” an IDF declaration stated.
More than 20 of those abducted by Hamas are kids, while in between 10 and 20 of them are over the age of 60, according to Israel.
The complete number of hostages stays vague, although it is believed to be about 200.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said thanks to Qatar for its aid in trying to safeguard the launch of British nationals being held by the terrorist team. At the very least 9 British nationals were eliminated in the strike, and an additional 7 stay absent.
Mr Sunak concurred with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim container Hamad al-Thani, that both needs to maintain “in close contact” in their initiatives to “end the torment of the victims and their families”.
