Bennett to speak of ‘sacred obligation’ to bring back Israelis held by Hamas

In his speech later, Bennett is also expected to speak of Israelis held by Hamas in Gaza. Hamas holds two Israeli civilians captive — Hisham al-Sayed and Avera Mengistu — as well as the bodies of two Israeli soldiers, Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul.

He will voice a commitment to bringing the four back, and say he sees their return as “a sacred obligation.”
