Israel-Hamas war: Freed hostages return to Israel from Gaza

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

The freed hostages will be taken to four hospitals across Israel – where they’ll be reunited with their families and be given specialist medical and psychological care.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said each and every one was “an entire world” – declaring “we are committed to the return of all our abductees”.

Israel has also released the first group of Palestinian prisoners – as part of the exchange deal.

They include 24 women and 15 teenage boys – and have been greeted by a crowd waving Palestinian flags.
