Hostage release process to include 5 stages — report

Channel 12 reports that the Prime Minister’s Office has developed a set process through which the hostages will be released and transferred to Israel, amid a developing hostage deal currently being discussed in the cabinet.

First, Hamas is set to hand over the hostages to the Red Cross, after which they will be transferred to IDF representatives. The hostages will then undergo an initial medical check by authorities, and then be taken to one of five isolated medical centers across Israel to meet with their families.

In the fourth stage, medical and defense authorities will determine together whether at least some of the hostages can be debriefed.

In the final stage of the mechanism, the hostages will indeed undergo a debriefing with security officials.
