Hadassah Releases Statement on Hostage Deal

In response to the announcement of a deal for the release of Israeli civilian hostages taken by Hamas terrorists, Hadassah National President Rhoda Smolow and CEO Naomi Adler this morning released the following statement:

“We welcome the return of Israelis, who in violation of international laws of war, were ruthlessly kidnapped by Hamas and held in captivity against their will for over six weeks. Our hearts are with these individuals and their families as they work to heal their physical and emotional scars.”

While we are relieved that these women and children will be reunited with their loved ones, we continue to advocate and pray for and demand the immediate unconditional and safe release of all hostages captured by Hamas. Kidnapping innocent civilians is a stark reminder that terrorism continues to be a threat to humanity, democracy and the rule of law.”
