Israeli Forces Rescue Hostages in Rafah Raid Amid Airstrikes, Resulting in Civilian Casualties

Israeli forces rescued two hostages, 60-year-old Fernando Simon Marman and 70-year-old Louis Har, who had been held captive by Hamas since October 7. The operation involved airstrikes that local officials estimate resulted in the deaths of around 100 people.

The hostages, in relatively good condition, had spent 128 days in captivity and have since reunited with their families. The rescue operation, described as complex by Israel Defense Forces spokesman Daniel Hagari, was executed based on “highly sensitive and valuable intelligence.” It included the participation of Shin Bet (Israel’s internal security service), police special forces, and an IDF tank brigade.

Israeli special forces entered the building where the hostages were held at 1:49 a.m. local time, encountering resistance from Hamas militants stationed in adjacent buildings. The hostages were found on the second floor “in the hands of Hamas terrorists.” The operation faced ongoing resistance, and the hostages were protectively escorted out under fire from Hamas. After being taken to a safe place within Rafah for medical attention, they were airlifted out of Gaza by helicopter.

While the successful rescue will be celebrated in Israel, the airstrikes carried out by the Israeli Air Force as “aerial cover” for the ground operation reportedly resulted in a significant loss of life inside Gaza, with an estimated 100 casualties. The operation reflects the ongoing tensions in the region, sparking concerns about the broader humanitarian impact on civilians in Gaza.
