The mother of two children held in Gaza stands vigil outside IDF Headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Hadas Calderon’s children Erez, 12, and Sahar, 16, were kidnapped to the Strip along with her ex-husband Ofer on October 7.

“We must not miss this chance for a deal,” Calderon says, amid reports of a potential agreement that could see some of the hostages released.

“I call on all the mothers to come to the entrance to the Kirya, and to stand alongside me,” she says, using the name of the headquarters base.

“We must bring them home.”
