Soroka Medical Center director Dr. Shlomi Kodesh says that a hostage who was released by the Hamas terror group last night, remains in moderate condition.

Maya Regev, 21, was taken straight to the hospital after she arrived back in Israel — all the other hostages were taken to other medical centers.

Regev will undergo a series of surgeries and is expected to recover fully.

She was kidnapped by Hamas from the Supernova music festival near Re’im during the October 7 onslaught.

Regev was there with her brother Itay, 18, who was also taken hostage but was not released with her.
