Natalie Raanan has arrived back in Chicago, ten days after being released from Hamas captivity along with her mother Judith.

“Her family members have been anxiously waiting for her return, and today I am sharing their happiness,” Israel Consul General to the Midwest Yinam Cohen tweets.

“While we’re celebrating Natalie’s return, we remember the 239 hostages, among them babies, children, women, and the elderly, who are still held by Hamas in Gaza,” he adds.

Raanan was visiting family in Israel and was taken hostage into Gaza by Hamas terrorists during the October 7 onslaught.
