The Shin Bet security agency and Israel Defense Forces are unlikely to reveal further information on how IDF soldier Pvt. Ori Megidish was rescued from Hamas captivity in the Gaza Strip, to prevent harm to future operations.

Megidish was believed to have been held alone, though other members of her unit were captured by Hamas terrorists on October 7.

The operation was planned several days in advance and it is thought that during the overnight activity, Hamas showed resistance.

However, no members of Israeli security forces were reported hurt.
