Israeli troops rescued two hostages from a building surrounded by terrorists in Gaza said the IDF Monday morning. And both freed hostages were brought to Sheba Hospital and are in stable condition, reports The Jerusalem Post:

The hostages, Fernando Simon Marman (61) and Louis Norbeto Har (70), were kidnapped by the Hamas terrorist organization on October 7 from Kibbutz Nir Yitzhak.

The two hostages were rescued as part of an operation that began with heavy IDF airstrikes in the Shabura district in central Rafah.

The IDF also said that the hostages were held on the second floor of a building in the heart of Rafah. The forces entered the building stealthily, as the surrounding apartments were full of armed terrorists…

Sheba Medical Center also released a statement on the condition of the hostages, saying, “Early in the morning, two Israeli hostages who were freed by our forces from the Gaza Strip arrived at the Sheba Medical Center. After an initial medical examination, the condition of the two is defined as good and stable, and they are now staying in a designated compound.”
