The IDF releases footage from last weekend showing troops of the Paratroopers Brigade’s reconnaissance unit operating near central Gaza’s Nuseirat, as rescued Israeli hostages and special forces were transferred to armored vehicles.

The video shows the paratroopers arriving at an area where the Yamam and Shin Bet officers got stuck with the rescued hostages, and securing it.

The special forces, including fatally wounded Yamam officer Ch. Insp. Arnon Zmora, and the hostages were then extracted in armored vehicles and taken to the Netzarim Corridor area, from where they were airlifted to a hospital in Israel.
