The Israel Defense Forces says 14 hostages released by Hamas this evening — 10 Israelis and four Thai nationals — have been transferred by the Red Cross from the Gaza Strip to Egypt, via the Rafah crossing.

They will be brought to a meeting point where Israeli forces will verify their identities, before escorting them into Israel via a side gate at the Kerem Shalom crossing.

“The families of the hostages are being updated by IDF representatives with the latest available information,” the IDF says.
