In Hebrew tweet, Macron says France putting in all efforts to free hostages from Hamas

French President Emmanuel Macron says France is making great efforts to help secure the release of the hostages held by terror group Hamas in Gaza, following its shock October 7 raid on southern Israel in which terrorists killed some 1,200 people and took some 240 — of all ages — captive.

In separate tweets in French, English, and Hebrew, Macron says France is “putting all our efforts, all our strength, into freeing the hostages held by Hamas and allowing their families to be reunited with their loved ones.”

In Hebrew, the tweet refers to the hostages as “our hostages.”

Among the 239 hostages held by Hamas and other allied factions, about 100 are dual or foreign nationals. At least seven are believed to have dual French-Israeli nationality.
