Hamas releases 24 hostages in exchange for 39 Palestinian women and children unlawfully imprisoned by Israel
11/28/2023 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

On the first day of the temporary ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian militant group in Gaza has agreed to release 24 hostages in exchange for 39 Palestinian women and children unlawfully imprisoned by Israel.

The temporary ceasefire, whose first day began at 7 a.m. local time on Friday, Nov. 24, was the result of weeks of negotiations between Israel and Hamas and brokered by other nations like Egypt and Qatar.

The 24 hostages transferred out of Gaza include 13 Israeli women and children, 10 Thai farm workers and one Philippine caregiver. They were transferred first into the custody of Egyptian authorities at the Rafah border crossing, where their health was monitored by staff members from the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Some of the Israeli hostages are dual citizens, including four children accompanied by four other members of their respective families. The remaining five Israelis are elderly women. They were transferred from the care of Egyptian authorities into Israeli custody and underwent medical assessment inside Israeli territory before being reunited with their families.

"I miss her very, very much, I want her to be back already," said Corinne Moshe, daughter-in-law of 72-year-old hostage Adina Moshe, who was among the first to be released. She said her husband and his siblings met their mother at the hospital when she was released. "I want to have dinner with her and the entire family again."

In exchange for the release of the 24 hostages, the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also agreed to release 39 Palestinians – 24 women and 15 children – it has unlawfully detained in Israeli jails.

"We have just completed the return of the first batch of our hostages. Children, their mothers and other women. Each and every one of them is a world in itself," said Netanyahu. "But I stress to you, the families, and to you, citizens of Israel: We are committed to returning all our hostages."

Temporary ceasefire could be extended by Israel in exchange for more hostages

Over 200 hostages are still held in the custody of Hamas, and hundreds more Palestinian men, women and children alike – mostly from the occupied West Bank – continue to languish under unlawful detention in Israeli jails.

Netanyahu's office has confirmed that the temporary ceasefire could be extended if more hostages are released. But his government has vowed to resume the offensive once the truce ends, supposedly to wipe out Hamas.

Nevertheless, other nations are optimistic that this temporary ceasefire and the limited hostage and prisoner swap could be the foundation for a more long-term ceasefire in Gaza – and possibly even a lasting peace in Israel and Palestine.

President Joe Biden himself said there was a real chance of extending the truce and that the pause in fighting was a critical opportunity to get more humanitarian aid into Gaza. German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, who commented because four of the Israelis who were released were dual citizens of Germany, expressed the need for the ceasefire to "last as long as possible."
