Amazing, though a "freeze" implies it's temporary and could later, and retroactively, be unfrozen. Here's to hoping it's permanent and others follow suit. For peace of any sort to be an option, the antisemitism and hatred in NGOs and the PA needs to be acknowledged and addressed as a prerequisite.

Red Cross begins receiving latest round of hostages.

10 hostages turned over to Red Cross
Fifth group of hostages in process of being released after ceasefire extended by two days.
Israel National News
  Nov 28, 2023, 6:12 PM (GMT+2)

The release of the fifth group of Hamas hostages began this evening (Tuesday) and the ten hostages who are scheduled to be released tonight are in the process of being handed over to the Red Cross. They will return to Israel later tonight.

This group of ten hostages is being freed after an agreement was reached to extend the hostage deal and ceasefire by two days. 51 Israeli hostages have been freed since Friday under the original agreement.

About 150 people are believed to still be held as hostages in Gaza, out of 240 who were kidnapped on October 7.

The hostages who have been released have been malnourished, often losing over ten pounds during their 50 days in captivity. Families of the freed hostages have described the trauma and ill-treatment their loved ones endured. The father of nine-year-old Emily Hand told CNN that his daughter came back with her head covered in lice, while the family of 84-year-old Elma Avraham said that their mother was "on the brink of death" when she was returned with a body temperature of just 82 degrees Fahrenheit.

Israelis need to tighten the screws in this psychological war, maybe put some hamas prisoners on starvation diets?

Are they trying to be relevant in the event Hamas is weakened/eradicated so they can take the terror helm?

Here is an example tweet of what I don't like about Edy Cohen (who I put on my list upthread and mentioned that I dislike his style).

For Hamas this was never about prisoners. but still PR malpractice.

I find this kind of tweet from him to be childish at best. And it's often his style in his Arabic tweets. Maybe it's cultural.
