Two Israeli hostages rescued
Israeli forces say they have freed 2 hostages during a raid in the city of Rafah in southern Gaza as their military continues to launch air strikes in the region. The Israel Defense Forces says both 60yo Fernando Simon Marman and 70yo Louis Har are in “good medical condition” despite having been held since the 7 October Hamas attacks. It’s thought about 100 hostages are still being held in Gaza, with Hamas describing the ongoing air assaults as “genocidal” as the death toll passed 28,000, according to the local health ministry. International concern about Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to launch a full-scale ground invasion continues, with US President Joe Biden saying there needs to be a “credible” plan to protect civilians with more than 1 million displaced Palestinians sheltering in the city.
