Freed hostages on way to hospitals to be united with families

The military says in a statement that the 12 freed hostages have undergone initial medical checks at a meeting point in southern Israel and are now making their way by helicopter to hospitals where they will be reunited with family.

The Health and Foreign ministries say in separate statements that two freed Thai nationals are being treated at Shamir-Assaf Harofeh Hospital in central Israel.

The Health Ministry says Ichilov and Sheba medical centers are also taking in freed hostages Tuesday.

A picture published by the government shows freed hostages Mia and Gabriela Lemberg, and their dog Buffy, making a call to family from the army meeting point where the former hostages were checked out.
