Report: Hamas also set to release 23 Thai hostages following Iranian mediation

Hamas has said that in addition to the Qatar-mediated hostage deal with Israel, it will also release 23 Thai hostages it is holding in Gaza, without any conditions, following Iranian mediation between the Palestinian terror group and the Thai government, the London-based pan-Arab news site Al-Araby Al-Jadeed reports.

Quoting an unnamed Egyptian source, the Arabic-language outlet says Tehran has provided Bangkok with details on the condition of the 23 abductees, who were kidnapped during the October 7 Hamas onslaught in which thousands of terrorists murdered some 1,200 people, including dozens of Thai workers, and took over 240 hostage.
