Israeli health minister slams Red Cross’s conduct over hostages held by Hamas

Israeli Health Minister Uriel Busso pans the Red Cross organization, which has been handling the transfer of released hostages from Gaza to Israel via Egypt, over its lack of efforts to secure access to hostages held by Hamas and gain information on their wellbeing.

In an overnight post in Hebrew on X, Busso says the organization “refuses and neglects with complete insensitivity to transfer and make available information to Magen David Adom on the safety of the hostages.”

“It is time to speak with a clear voice, Hamas is a terrorist organization that slaughtered and kidnapped women, children, and elderly people…We need an organization that will protect and give hope to the families of the hostages, and provide medical information. Any other conduct is acceptance and support for terror.”
