Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Agarnesh Mengistu, mother of Avera Mengistu — one of the two Israeli citizens being held captive by Hamas in Gaza.
Government military secretary Avi Gil joins the meeting as well.
Two weeks ago, Hamas released a video clip of Mengistu, the first such footage since he was captured more than eight years ago, filling his family with both hope and added concern.
