Hamas releases video claiming to show handoff of hostages

Hamas’s Qassam Brigades has published a video showing hostages Nurit Cooper and Yocheved Lifshitz being handed over to the Red Cross.

In the video, the two women, wearing identical purple robes, walk unsteadily holding the hands of masked gunmen, who also offer them snacks and drinks. Both appear terrified through much of the footage.

The pair are then seen walking to a vehicle where a person in a Red Cross vest waits. Just before the propaganda video ends, Lifshitz turns to shake the hand of one gunman as she walks away.
