The families of freed hostages Noa Argamani, Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov and Shlomi Ziv thank the security forces who freed their loved ones in an operation in the Gaza Strip earlier today and express their condolences over the loss of a counter-terrorism officer in the mission.

Yaakov Argamani, Noa’s father, thanks the IDF, and stresses, “We must do everything, and as soon as possible to bring them home,” referring to the other hostages.

“Today is my birthday, and what a present I received,” he adds.

Jenifer Master, Kozlov’s partner, also thanks the army and sends condolences to the family of the Chief Inspector Arnon Zmora, and expresses hope the rest of the hostages would return home safely.

“There’s a lot of happiness today, a lot of tears,” says Anna, Kozlov’s aunt, also sending condolences to Zmora’s family.

Orit, Jan’s mother, said: “Almog asked to say: We have a strong nation, thanks very much. I support the soldiers, I hope all the hostages come home safely.”
