US Military cell in Israel supported the effort to rescue the four hostages in Gaza : US official

A U.S. official told Axios the U.S. hostages cell in Israel supported the effort to rescue the four hostages.

The Israeli military said its troops had rescued on Saturday four Israeli hostages alive from Gaza after a “complex daytime operation .

“Noa Argamani (25), Almog Meir Jan (21), Andrey Kozlov (27), and Shlomi Ziv (40), were kidnapped by the Hamas terrorist organization from the Nova music festival on October 7,” the military said in a statement, adding the four were in “good medical condition.

“The hostages were rescued… from two separate locations in the heart of Nuseirat” in central Gaza, the military added.

The rare rescue comes eight months into war with Palestinian Hamas militants in Gaza. During their October 7 attack on the music festival and other areas of southern Israel, militants took 251 hostages, 116 of whom now remain in the Palestinian territory, including 41 the army says are dead.
