Hamas terrorists ‘release ten more hostages’ as tense Israel truce enters its final day tomorrow

HAMAS is expected to “release ten more hostages” before the final day of the four-day truce takes place tomorrow.

Israeli local media claimed the process of transferring the fifth batch of hostages to the Red Cross has now begun in Gaza.

Ten more Israeli hostages are set to be released by Hamas tonight

Eleven hostages, including nine children and two mothers, were released last night

According to Channel 13 news, the freed hostages could be in Israeli hands within the hour.

Local reports have stated that in addition to the ten hostages set to be freed tonight, six more Thais have also been released – but this has not yet been confirmed.

It comes as eleven Israeli hostages were freed by Hamas thugs last night after spending a horror 51 days in captivity.

Photos of the moment they were freed show bandaged-up children in wheelchairs and relieved parents clutching onto terrified toddlers as the nine kids and two mothers were taken to safety by IDF soldiers.

The eleven hostages have now safely crossed the border into Israel with the help of the Red Cross – as the truce has been reportedly extended by two extra days.

Officials in Israel have estimated that during the extra two days, a total of 100 hostages and 300 terrorists will be released.

But the children freed last night have all left behind their fathers in the hellish tunnels of Gaza.

A statement by the IDF said: “IDF special forces and ISA forces are currently accompanying 11 released hostages in Israeli territory.

“After they undergo an initial medical assessment of their health, our forces will accompany them until they are reunited with their families.

“The IDF, together with the entire Israeli security establishment, will continue operating until all the hostages are returned home.”

The final day of the truce was expected to take place on Monday but is now set to span another 48 hours – with the hopes of more hostages being released.

The aunt of Israel’s youngest hostage, baby Kfir Bibas, has begged for his immediate release after he was reportedly handed over to another Palestinian terror group in a sickening trade.

Kfir was snatched by Hamas monsters from Kibbutz Nir Oz during their October 7 killing spree along with his brother Ariel, 4, mother Shiri, 32, and father, Yarden, 34.

Ofri Bibas begged for their safe return and told local media: “At the moment they are the youngest hostages still remaining in Hamas captivity.

“We don’t know where they’ve been held. From what we know, they are kept underground.

“I hope they don’t hold them as a trophy,” she added.

Six Thai nationals have also been released through Egypt’s Rafah crossing, with some sent to hospital for routine checks.

According to Hamas, 33 Palestinians are due to be given in exchange for the Israeli hostages.

Of the 33, reports suggest 20 are children and three are women.

A mum, alongside her three-year-old twins, are among the latest batch of Israeli hostages freed from the cruel clutches of Hamas.

Sharon Konio, 34, was abducted with her children Emma and Yuli from a family dinner in Kibbutz Nir Oz.

Sharon’s husband David is still being held captive.

Two more children Sahar, 16, and 12-year-old Erez Calderon were greeted by their relieved mother Hadas as they were set free.

The tragic story of how Hadas discovered her kids and husband Ofer had been kidnapped by the militants had gripped people from across the globe.

The loving mum hid in a bomb shelter for eight hours before she found out her family had been snatched by Hamas.

Hadas demanded her boys be released as she said: “The last message I got from them they told me they jumped from the window and ran from the house.

“I don’t know if they’re alive or murdered.

“These children are never away from me for more than two or three days, but now it’s been weeks.

“Hamas burn our souls, it’s hell.”

Ofer remains trapped in Hamas’s hands.

Teenagers Ya’akov Yaacbv, 16, and his brother Yagil, 12, are also heading to Israel after being dragged from a bomb shelter in Nir Oz on October 7.

Yagil – who was seen in a horror video – was overheard on a phone call to his mother begging: “Don’t take me, I’m too small.”

Eitan Yahalomi, 12, was also freed on Monday after being described as a very sensitive child terrified by the sound of rockets.

The innocent boys’ dad Ohad was also kidnapped after he was hit by a bullet in a vicious firefight with Hamas terrorists as he fought to protect his family with a handgun.

Karina Engelbert, 52, and her two children Mika, 18, and 11-year-old Yuval have also been released.

The heroic mother was still recovering from a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery when she was snatched from Nir Oz kibbutz.

On Sunday, Hamas freed 17 hostages – 14 Israelis and three Thais – in the third exchange under the four-day truce.

In turn, Israel released 39 Palestinian prisoners.

Of the roughly 240 hostages captured by Hamas in its October 7 massacre, 62 have been released.

One was freed by Israeli forces and two were found dead inside Gaza.

Israel has said it would extend the ceasefire by one day for every 10 additional hostages released.

Qatar, along with Egypt, has been the key mediator in the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas.

“The State of Qatar announces, as part of the ongoing mediation, an agreement has been reached to extend the humanitarian truce for an additional two days in the Gaza Strip,” Dr Majed al Ansari said. 

A Hamas statement read: “The Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas announces that it has been agreed with the brothers in Qatar and Egypt to extend the temporary humanitarian truce for an additional two days under the same conditions as the previous truce.”

It comes after the terror group claimed it does not know where dozens of child hostages are being held in Gaza.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani who is leading talks told the Financial Times: “If they [Hamas] get additional women and children, there will be an extension.

“We don’t yet have any clear information how many they can find because … one of the purposes [of the pause in fighting] is they [Hamas] will have time to search for the rest of the missing people.”

The claim was viewed with skepticism due to concerns that Hamas leaders might exploit the ceasefire as an opportunity to reassemble for further violence.

Hamas also claimed they hadn’t abducted any civilians – despite their own members recording the act of seizing vulnerable hostages and forcibly returning them to Gaza during the massacre.

About 240 hostages, including Israeli soldiers and sick and elderly civilians, are understood to have been taken hostage by the terror group and held in their web of underground tunnels.

During the past week, a deal brokered by Qatar led to the freeing of 50 Israeli women and children in exchange for the release of 150 Palestinians from Israeli prisons throughout the four-day ceasefire.

Palestinian civilians have been left fleeing for their lives as Israel attempts to destroy Hamas after the terror group massacred 1,200 civilians on October 7.

Families living in Gaza have been caught in the brutal crossfire, with regular accusations that the terrorists are attempting to use them as “human shields”.

Much of the northern part of the strip has been turned into a devastated warzone – with ruined buildings, dwindling supplies and horrific suffering for Gaza’s people.

The Red Cross estimates that some 1.5million civilians have been forced to flee south amid the Israeli onslaught from land, air and sea.

Figures for the death toll remain unverified – but Hamas’ health officials claim more than 11,000 civilians, including more than 4,500 children have been killed.

Israel disputes these figures – and US President Joe Biden said he had “no confidence” in them.

But Benjamin Netanyahu admitted Israel has “not been successful” in reducing civilian casualties.

But he said the deaths must be blamed on Hamas – not Israel.
And as the horror continues there have been growing calls for a humanitarian ceasefire to stop the bloodshed.
