Israeli forces rescue two hostages during Rafah raid | DW News

Two more hostages are back in Israel, after being freed in an overnight raid in Gaza in which dozens of Palestinians were killed. Israel says they were rescued in a special military operation in the southern city of Rafah. The two men were kidnapped during the October 7th terror attacks on Israel by Hamas, which is regarded as a terror organization by multiple countries. They were flown by helicopter to a hospital near Tel Aviv for medical checks. DW spoke to Dekel Lifschitz, whose own grandfather remains in Hamas captivity, and to military analyst Marina Miron of King’s College London, about the challenging rescue operations.
