Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with troops from the Yamam police counter-terrorism unit who participated in the overnight hostage rescue operation.

“This was one of the most successful rescue operations in the history of the State of Israel. You eliminated the kidnappers, the terrorists and made your way back to Israel unscathed – a perfectly executed operation,” Netanyahu tells the troops, according to a statement from his office.

Netanyahu is joined by far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, who was left out of the war room as the operation was unfolding.
