One of the elderly Israeli hostages freed this evening from Gaza is being taken straight via helicopter to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba, the hospital says.

“These are sensitive times for both the families and the rescued hostages who have returned to Israel, and we wish to maintain their privacy and dignity,” the health ministry notes.

Various Hebrew media reports say the hostage is in need of immediate medical attention. The oldest hostage released tonight is 84-year-old Elma Avraham.
