Alongside Hamas gunmen accompanying hostages to a Red Cross meeting point were armed members of the Islamic Jihad terror group.

Members of Islamic Jihad, which is smaller than Hamas but still yields considerable muscle in Gaza, are thought to have held a number of Israelis abducted on October 7 hostage.

However, they have not been a visible presence on previous nights when hostages are handed over to the ICRC to be transferred to Israel.
