US Secretary Antony J. Blinken Remarks to the Press On Hostages, Conflict In Israel/Gaza
"Two American citizens held by Hamas since October 7th were released".
SECRETARY BLINKEN: Good afternoon, everyone. About an hour ago, two American citizens held by Hamas since October 7th were released.
These two Americans are now safely in the hands of Israeli authorities in Israel. We expect a team from the U.S. embassy to see them very shortly. Over the coming hours, they’ll receive any support and assistance they need, and of course we’re very anxious to be able to reunite them with their loved ones. We welcome their release.
