Hamas says no hostage release before ceasefire

1 Min Read

The group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has said it will not release any of the hostages it seized during its attack on Israel earlier this month until a ceasefire is reached. The statement came as Israel continued to bomb Gaza, killing hundreds of civilians.

A member of a Hamas delegation visiting Moscow was ready to negotiate with Israel through mediators, but only after a halt to the Israeli aggression. He said that releasing the hostages, who are estimated to number more than 200, was not possible under the current circumstances.
