Netanyahu and Herzog Say They Are Committed to the Return of All Hostages
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a video on Friday evening, November 24, in which he commented on the release of 13 hostages who were held in Gaza, in the first phase of the deal which was agreed upon last week.
“We just completed the return of the first of our hostages: children, their mothers, and additional women. Each of them is an entire world,” said Netanyahu.
“But I emphasize to you, the families, and to you, citizens of Israel: we are committed to returning all the hostages. This is one of the aims of the war and we are committed to achieving all the aims of the war,” added Netanyahu.
President Isaac Herzog also commented on the release of the 13 hostages, “On behalf of the entire nation, I thank everyone who is engaged in the holy work of bringing our sons and daughters home. It is important to remember that the job is not done until all the hostages return to Israel,” he said.
“I want to strengthen the people involved in the negotiations, all of the security forces, the forces who are fighting in the field, the Israeli intelligence community, the psychological teams, the social workers, the medical, rescue, and rehabilitation forces, and the families of the hostages, along with the relevant international factors,” he added.

“God, we thank You for guiding our leaders into prioritizing the release of the hostages. We are immensely grateful and rejoice that some of the Israeli and foreign families have reunited. We continue to pray for the immediate release of all remaining hostages, as well as for the permanent cessation of all hostilities in the land of Israel.”
