BREAKING: Raid in Rafah - what we know so far!

NEWSRAEL: For all those (Biden, Blinken) who have asked themselves why it is important to operate militarily in Rafah as well, here is the answer: There are live hostages there being held by terrorists.

In a joint operation by the Shin Bet, IDF and IDF: Two Israelis kidnapped on 10/7 Fernando Marman and Louis Har were rescued alive from Rafah

The IDF spokesman, Brigadier General Daniel Hagari, updates the details of the operation:

"Tonight we carried out a successful rescue operation in which we rescued Fernando Simon Marman and Louis Har who were kidnapped from Nir Yitzhak (the Leimberg-Har family). They are in good condition. They are currently undergoing medical tests at Sheba Hospital.

Both were held by Hamas in Rafah.

The operation was managed by the Shin Bet's Special Operations Command and was carried out by YAMAM fighters and the Shin Bet's operational unit.

The IDF and Shin Bet have been working on this operation for an extended period of time, there were no conditions so far to carry it out and they waited until the conditions were fulfilled. The operation was very complex in reaching the destination in Rafah. 

The forces arrived at the target secretly around 1:00 in the morning (Israel time), and carried out a very complex operation on a building complex - on the second floor where the abductees were held. It was covert work with cloaks, a large air envelope, intimate intelligence.

When the forces got there - there was a break-in into the building, there were armed guards in the nearby houses, inside the house were 3 terrorists who were guarding the abductees.

The forces stormed into the building in a hot burst using a charge, because the door was locked. They entered the building, pulled the two adult hostages (61 and 70 years old) out of the building. 

A shootout took place on the spot, heavy fire was launched from the air, fire was opened from the nearby buildings by terrorists. The Air Force attacked there strongly - there are many terrorists who were killed tonight in this operation. 

In the action there is one fighter who was slightly injured, beyond that - there are no casualties to our forces.

After that the force cut off contact, forces of the 7th Brigade 9tank corps) with the Navy sea commandos escorted the forces out on Namers (Merkava APCs). The entire operation lasted at the destination itself for about an hour from end to end. 

They arrived at a nearby airstrip, we brought the hostages there and from there they took off to Sheba - where they are now meeting their families.

In the headquarters of the operation sat shoulder to shoulder the head of the Shin Bet, the chief of staff, the police commissioner, the commander of the navy, the head of the military, the head of the military, the commander of the air force, they all worked that night. 

The Minister of Defense and the Prime Minister also sat in the headquarters.

The commander of the Southern Command commanded the airstrikes from the HQ command in Be'er Sheva, together with the commander of the 98th Commando Division.

At Sheba Hospital, the hostages are now meeting their families.

It was a night with a lot of tension but a very exciting result.

Arab reports say at least 77 terrorists were killed in the raid, and one lightly wounded IDF soldier!

We have another 134 hostages and we remember that we will continue to do everything we can to return them home!
