The Shin Bet security agency releases photos from its war room during the dramatic hostage rescue last night in southern Gaza’s Rafah.

The command center from which the operation was managed was crowded overnight, with the head of Shin Bet, IDF chief of staff, police commissioner, head of military intelligence, head of IDF operations, and the chief of the air force all supervising the rescue.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, and National Security Adviser Tzachi Hanegbi also joined to observe the operation.
