The Israeli army has announced the release of four hostages who were held on the Gaza side since October 7 amidst the conflict between Hamas fighters and Israel.

These hostages were freed yesterday as a result of several military operations in central Gaza. However, according to figures provided by medical facilities in Gaza, Israel’s military operations to release these hostages have resulted in at least 70 deaths.

The four released hostages, identified as Noa Argaman, 25, Almog Ma’ir Jan, 21, Andrei Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 40, reportedly met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The hostages have not disclosed anything about their period of captivity with Hamas. They were taken hostage in Hamas’ October 7 attack on a music concert in southern Israel and were held in central Gaza. But how did the Israeli army locate the coordinates of the hostages’ location?

International media have reported in response to this question that a US team is stationed at the country’s embassy in Jerusalem to gather information about the location of the hostages, assisting the Israeli army in this regard.

The Washington Post, Axios analytical website, and The New York Times citing diplomatic sources, have confirmed that a team from the United States is conducting drone surveillance over Gaza and eavesdropping on telephone conversations in Israel to investigate potential hostage-holding locations.

Medical facilities, including al-Aqsa and al-Awda hospitals in Gaza, have reported receiving at least 70 bodies following Israel’s operations to release the hostages.

Hamas’ media office has reported a figure exceeding 200, stating in its statement after the release of Israeli hostages that as a result of Israel’s operation, 210 people have been killed, including some of the hostages, but did not provide further details.

The Israeli army has also responded to reports of civilian casualties resulting from its operations in Gaza, stating that fewer than 100 people have been killed in this operation.
