Some of the girls released from Gaza say they were held hostage with female Israel Defense Forces soldiers, who braided their hair for them while in captivity.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, when they were freed, the girls were asked who had done their elaborate hairstyles.

“The soldiers who were with me, they combed my hair and they did the French braids for me,” one of the girls reportedly responded.

Several female soldiers are among the 138 people held hostage by terrorists in Gaza.
