Hamas said to be demanding release of all elite terror operatives captured on Oct 7 in exchange for hostages

Hamas has demanded that Israel release all operatives of the terror group’s elite Nukhba forces who were captured on October 7 in return for the release of the hostages held captive in Gaza, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

The Nukhba forces are the terror group’s elite fighters, and they were the first to enter Israel on October 7, when thousands of terrorists poured through the Gaza border, slaughtering some 1,200 people and seizing 253 hostages.

Hamas’s demand is reportedly being discussed by Israeli officials, although no decision has been made on the matter, Kan reports.
