Hostage families announce campaign to secure majority of lawmakers for deal to free captives

The Hostage and Missing Families Forum say they have launched an “emergency operation” to secure a majority of votes in the government and Knesset for a proposed deal to return hostages held by Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

“The forum demands that hostages are returned, some for recovery and some for burial, and not to miss the opportunity created to bring them home. In the next few hours, families of abductees will reach all the members of the cabinet, the government, and the Knesset and demand to approve the [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s] deal now,” it says in a statement.
