As a new morning dawns, Israel has announced it has managed to safely rescue two hostages from Hamas captivity in Gaza.
The two, Fernando Simon Marman (60) and Norberto Louis Har (70) were extracted in a joint operation by the IDF, Shin Bet and Israel Police in Rafah.
They were kidnapped from Kibbutz Nir Yitzhak on October 7.
It is only the second such successful operation of its kind since October 7. The first was the rescue of soldier Ori Megidish in late October.
