‘They were hungry for days’: Relative says freed hostages came home very weak

A relative of the two hostages freed in an overnight operation in Gaza says that the men have lost a lot of weight during their four months in captivity.

“For days they were hungry,” the unnamed relative tells the Ynet news site, adding that they came back “very weak.”

The report says the two were mainly fed pita and cheese spread.

Fernando Marman, 61, and Louis Har, 70, were said to be in relatively good condition after being rescued in an operation that involved battles with Hamas terrorists and massive Israeli airstrikes in Rafah.
