Biden vows he won’t rest until all hostages freed: ‘They have my word’

Posting an image of his meeting with freed hostage Avigail Idan, US President Joe Biden promises to “not rest until every hostage, like Abigail, ripped from their families and held by Hamas is back in the arms of their loved ones.”

“They have my word. Their families have my word,” he writes on X.

Biden met the freed captive at the White House on Wednesday, and later described Idan as “remarkable and recovering from unspeakable trauma.”

Avigail, who turned four during her time in captivity, was released weeks later as part of a hostages-for-truce deal brokered by Qatar, Egypt and the US, which also included the release of Palestinian prisoners.
