The Israel Defense Forces confirms Hamas has handed over two dual Russian-Israeli citizens to the Red Cross in the Gaza Strip.

“According to the information provided by the Red Cross, two Israeli hostages were transferred to them and are on their way to Israeli territory,” it says in a short statement.

Hamas said earlier that the release of the two women was a gesture to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Another 10 Israeli hostages are due to be handed over to the Red Cross tonight.
