Details of the hostage rescue mission, including footage of the hostages being taken to a waiting helicopter in the article below. The female hostage was held by Hamas guards alone in the home of a Palestinian family, while the other three hostages were held at a separate home.

In IDF op ‘Seeds of Summer,’ 4 hostages rescued simultaneously from buildings 200 meters apart

The name of the joint IDF, Shin Bet and police operation to rescue the four hostages from the Gaza Strip is “Seeds of Summer.” At 11:00 a.m. the order was given to the Yamam and Shin Bet officers to raid two multi-story buildings in central Gaza’s Nuseirat.  The buildings were about 200 meters apart, and the decision to go for both simultaneously, and not just one of the sites, was due to the possibility that Hamas may murder the hostages after identifying the rescue operation.

Homes in which hostages have been mistreated and raped. Also sad is the fact that children are present in some of these homes and are aware of the presence of hostages.

Hostages get rescued from terrorists and terrorists call for UN security council meeting about genocide against them...

That literally sounds like something out of MAD magazine.

For those who don't recall, Noa was one of the more well known hostages as her kidnapping was captured on video. Her boyfriend is also seen being taken away. It's been speculated that the kidnappers were Palestinian civilians as none were armed or wearing uniforms.

Their jubilant celebrations they video and broadcast when things of this nature happen don't seem overly forced to me...

They seem to almost be enjoying themselves...

American intelligence aided Israeli forces in Gaza hostage rescue operation

The US hostages cell in Israel assisted in the effort to rescue the four hostages freed from Hamas captivity on Saturday, an American official told Walla's Barak Ravid. Additionally, the New York Times reported that the US had provided Israel with intelligence on the hostages prior to the operation. According to the Times, American and British intelligence collection and analysis teams have been operating in Israel to assist Israeli intelligence throughout the course of the war.

Hamas subsequently responded to the reports, slamming Washington for participating in Israel's effort to recover the hostages.

Here's Jordan's spin on the hostage rescue:

Jordan blasts ‘brutal Israeli attack’ in Gaza, without mentioning rescue of hostages

Jordan’s Foreign Ministry slams the “brutal Israeli attack” on the Nuseirat refugee camp, referring to the operation that successfully rescued four hostages held in the central Gaza Strip.

The ministry’s statement says the attack “reflects the systematic targeting of Palestinian civilians, the Israeli persistence in violating international law and international humanitarian law,” without referencing the rescue of the captives.

I assume that the ones who are being used by Sinwar as personal protection, are the ones in the most danger.

Dressed as an Arab woman: The untold captivity story of Noa Argamani

Rescued hostage Noa Argamani managed to avoid death four times during her kidnapping and while she was detained in Gaza captivity, according to a Channel 13 report from Saturday,

The first instance was when Argamani was kidnapped, the second was the lynching that took place when she arrived in Gaza, the third was the missile launch by the Israel Air Force (IAF), and the fourth was during the operation that led to her rescue.

‘Hero of Israel’: Thousands pay last respects to officer killed in hostage rescue op

Thousands of mourners, among them family members of hostages held in Gaza, flocked to Jerusalem on Sunday to attend the funeral of Arnon Zmora, the police counter-terror officer killed Saturday during an operation that rescued four captives from central Gaza.

Zmora, an officer of the elite Yamam counter-terrorism unit, was shot and critically injured by Hamas terrorists guarding three of the four hostages. He succumbed to his wounds shortly upon arriving at a hospital in Israel. He was part of the mission to rescue Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov, Shlomi Ziv and Noa Argamani, which was subsequently renamed “Operation Arnon” in his honor.

Gazans claim IDF special forces posed as civilians, Hamas fighters to near hostages

Some of the Israeli special forces that entered the Nuseirat camp in Gaza on Saturday to conduct a large-scale operation to free four hostages posed as displaced Gazans or as Hamas fighters, according to eyewitnesses quoted in Arab media outlets.

The Saudi-owned Asharq news channel quoted local residents saying that a special forces unit, including women, entered the camp in disguise, driving in a white car loaded with mattresses. They said the women were dressed in clothes “that women are wearing here in the war.”

Hamas operatives holding hostages have ‘standing orders’ to kill them if they think IDF is coming

Hamas terrorist leaders have given “standing orders” to operatives who are holding hostages “that if they think Israeli forces are coming, the first thing they should do is shoot the captives,” Israeli officials tell the New York Times.

In a report two days after the IDF’s rescue of four hostages from Nuseirat in central Gaza, the newspaper writes that if other hostages were killed on Saturday, as Hamas has claimed, “it might have been at the hand of the militants, not because of an Israeli airstrike.” It also notes that the IDF has directly denied a Hamas claim that three hostages were killed by Israeli airstrikes.
