United States President Joe Biden vowed Saturday that they “won’t stop working until all the [Israeli] hostages are home and a ceasefire is reached.”

That's essential to happen," Biden said in Paris alongside French President Emmanuel Macron, who also congratulated the families for the release of the captives.

Biden welcomed the operation carried out by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) today which freed four “Israeli” captives held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The four captives are identified as: Noa Argamani, Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov, and Shlomi Ziv.

Two Hamas sites were raided by “Israeli” special forces in Nuseirat, central Gaza. Noa Argamani was released at the first location, while Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov, and Shlomi Ziv were released at the second.

The Government Media Office in the Gaza Strip said that the death toll from the Nuseirat camp massacre has risen to 210, with more than 400 injured.

The massacre came after the IOF freed four captives in an operation today. Heavy airstrikes and gunfire were used to conduct the operations, in which over 210 Palestinians were massacred as a result.

The Gaza Government Media Office issued an urgent appeal to the international community to “save Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital and supply it with essential materials,” as it is currently overloaded due to the mass amount of victims admitted.
