The Israel Defense Forces says the 12 hostages — 10 Israelis and two foreigners — have been transferred by the Red Cross to Egypt via the Rafah crossing.

They will be brought to a meeting point where Israeli forces will verify their identities, before bringing them into Israel via a side gate at the Kerem Shalom crossing, the IDF says.

“The families of the hostages are being updated by IDF representatives with the latest available information,” the IDF says.
