The terrorist organization freed two additional hostages on Tuesday amid the current Israel-Hamas conflict, according to The Times of Israel. They were identified as Yocheved Lifshitz and Nurit Cooper.
The two liberated prisoners were reportedly transported by a military chopper that made a roof landing at Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital.
The Times of Israel said that Cooper and Lifshitz seemed well once they arrived at the Israeli Medical Centre, immediately following their release from Hamas captivity in Gaza, citing a nurse at the Ichilov Hospital.
The two elderly hostages had an emotional reunion with their families, the nurse told The Times of Israel.
Both the freed hostages were on medication that they may not have received during their two weeks of captivity.
The nurse said the hospital authorities will come to a better understanding of their condition in the morning, The Times of Israel reported.
Earlier, Hamas’s Qassam Brigades published a video showing the two hostages being handed over to members of the International Red Cross.
In the video, the two women, wearing identical purple robes, walk unsteadily holding the hands of masked gunmen, who also offer them snacks and drinks. Both appear terrified through much of the footage, according to The Times of Israel.
