The Israel Defense Forces confirms Hamas has handed over 14 hostages — 10 Israelis and four Thai nationals — to the Red Cross in the Gaza Strip, ahead of their transfer to Israel.

Earlier, Hamas released two dual Russian-Israeli citizens, Yelena Trupanov, and her mother Irena Tati, as part of a gesture to Russian President Vladimir Putin, unrelated to the deal with Israel. The two were brought to Sheba Medical Center following their return to Israel.

The 10 Israelis released this evening are Raz Ben Ami, 56, Yarden Roman, 35, Liat Atzili, 49, Moran Stela Yanai, 40, Liam Or, 18, Itay Regev, 18, Ofir Engel, 17, Amit Shani, 15, Gali Tarshansky, 13, and Raaya Rotem, 54.
