Earlier this evening, it was reported by a senior Israeli official that the head of the Mossad, Dedi Barnea, the head of the Shin Bet, Ronan Bar, and General Nitzan Alon are scheduled to leave for Cairo. The trio is set to meet with the head of the CIA, the Prime Minister of Qatar, and the head of Egyptian intelligence. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss further efforts to liberate more hostages currently held captive by Hamas.
Furthermore, new details were released about the rescue operation of Louis Hr, a 70-year-old man, and Fernando Marman, aged 60. In a bid to ensure the safety of the abductees, Navy soldiers skillfully lowered them using abseiling ropes from the second floor to the ground, bypassing the first floor where potential risks could have been encountered. It was also revealed that the street where the hostages had been held was heavily populated with terrorists.
The commander of the IDF, Sub-Commissioner H., praised the success of the operation, stating: “The Shin Bet and IDF operational units participated in the mission. Initially, the plan seemed dangerous and complex. However, as time passed, we realized that it was a viable operation. The intelligence kept getting sharper.”
