Channel 12 reports that Hannah Katzir, 77, learned that her husband Rami was murdered and that her son Elad was abducted into Gaza on October 7 only after she was released from captivity.

The network says that they learned that the released hostages feared for their lives while they were being transferred by Hamas to the Red Cross yesterday in Gaza because as they drove to Khan Younis, onlookers hurled stones and other objects at their van.

Some of the hostages survived on only rice during their last two weeks of captivity after receiving sufficient food for the first month or so, Channel 12 says.
