IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says two soldiers were seriously wounded during an operation to rescue hostages in the Gaza Strip overnight.

“The troops raided a Hamas site, killed terrorists who took part in the abduction and holding of the hostages,” he says.

He says the operation failed and no hostages were rescued.

“We will continue to act in a number of ways, operationally and with intelligence, with the Shin Bet, to return all the hostages home, and to obtain information on them,” he adds.
