Middle East Crisis: Gaza Cease-Fire Talks to Resume in Cairo

·1 min

Relatives and supporters of those abducted in Israel’s recent incident turned their protest into a vigil on Saturday, honoring the memory of a hostage whose body was recovered this week. The Israeli military reported retrieving the body of a 47-year-old man in Khan Younis and repatriating him. The militant group Islamic Jihad had taken him captive from the Nir Oz Kibbutz. The Israeli military claims that the hostage died in January at the hands of his captors. The authenticity of this claim remains unverified.
