Police block hostage families from Gaza crossing; relative laments, ‘They’ll return in 136 coffins’

Police prevent a group of relatives of hostages from reaching the Kerem Shalom border crossing with Gaza, where the families said they intended to block the entry of humanitarian aid into the Strip, in protest of the failure to secure the release of the 136 hostages believed held by Palestinian terrorists (though not all of them alive), and the lack of access and aid to them.

The convoy is blocked since the crossing area is designated as a closed military zone.

“It’s time to stop this joke. They’ll return in 136 coffins,” says Ayala Metzger, relative of elderly hostages Yoram and Tami Metzger.
