The 10 Israeli, and 4 Thai hostages are back in Israel after their release tonight from 54 days of Hamas captivity in Gaza.

The military says they are being escorted by special forces and members of the Shin Bet security agency.

“After they undergo an initial medical assessment of their health, our forces will accompany them until they are reunited with their families,” the IDF says.

The IDF asks the public to “demonstrate patience and sensitivity during this time out of respect for the released hostages and their families.”

Earlier, two Russian-Israeli hostages were released by Hamas.
