A relative of Noa Argamani tells reporters that the military banged on the door of where she was being held hostage in Gaza and yelled that they had come to rescue her.

“She told me a little. It was 10 a.m. and they banged on the door and shouted ‘It’s the IDF and we’ve come to rescue you,'” says Asaf Shaibi.

“She is strong. She has met with her family and the prime minister,” he says.

Officers of police’s elite Yamam counter-terrorism unit, along with Shin Bet agents, simultaneously raided two Hamas buildings in the heart of central Gaza’s Nuseirat this morning. Argamani was rescued at one site, while Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov, and Shlomi Ziv were at a second location.
