Hamas Releases Two American Hostages 

Mother and daughter were released “on humanitarian grounds.” 

Qatar negotiated the release of two Americans who had been held hostage by Hamas in Gaza. Judith and Natalie Raaman were originally abducted by Hamas from a kibbutz in southern Israel close to the Gaza Strip. 

A Hamas spokesman said, “In response to Qatari efforts, Al-Qassam Brigades released two American citizens (a mother and her daughter) for humanitarian reasons, and to prove to the American people and the world that the claims made by Biden and his fascist administration are false and baseless.” 

Eleven other Americans still remain unaccounted for. In his speech Thursday, President Biden said, “There’s no higher priority than the release and safe return of all these hostages.”

Hamas is reportedly holding 203 Israelis. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and secretary of state as they seek to account for the U.S. citizens who are missing.
  • For Israeli leaders, military, and citizens as they prepare their response to the terrorist attacks of Hamas.
  • For the peace of Jerusalem and the safety and security of Israel.
