The Israeli hostages are now en route to the Rafah Crossing to cross into Egypt after earlier being transferred to the Red Cross and undergoing brief medical examinations at a hospital in Khan Younis.

Hamas-linked Al-Aqsa TV cites sources in the terror group who confirm that they have handed over the first batch of Israeli captives to the Red Cross.
