She emphasized the need for continuous efforts to secure the release of all remaining hostages, with five French nationals still missing or believed to be held captive.
In a significant move, Hamas released a total of 11 hostages from Gaza on Monday, which included two individuals with German nationality and six with Argentinian nationality.
Meanwhile, Qatar, serving as a mediator, has announced a two-day extension of the truce between Israeli and Hamas forces in Gaza.
This extension aims to continue the ceasefire, which has temporarily halted seven weeks of conflict, resulting in significant casualties and damage in the Palestinian enclave.
Hamas, with the support of Qatar and Egypt, has agreed to this extension, maintaining the same conditions as the previous four-day ceasefire.
