Nine Americans Still Missing After Hamas Terror Attack

via PBS NewsHour

Nine Americans are still missing following the Hamas terror attack in Israel, with ongoing negotiations now involving the Israelis, the Qataris, and the United States.

Efforts are being made to secure a deal for the release of hostages, and President Biden has expressed his committment to bringing them home safely.

The precise number of hostages is unknown, but there are nine known missing American citizens and one missing legal permanent representative. (Trending: Photos Released Of Cocaine Found In White House)

National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan will be meeting with the families of the American hostages.

“I have to be careful about what I say publicly on this because it is, of course, a delicate and sensitive negotiation. But the answer to your question is, yes, there are ongoing negotiations involving the Israelis, the Qataris,” Sullivan stated.

“And we, the United States, are actively engaged in this as well because we want to make sure that we bring home those Americans who have been taken hostage, as well as all of the other hostages.”

“So, that continues. There are efforts to try to secure a deal that would involve their release of hostages.”

“And the president’s not going to rest until we achieve that deal so that every single one of those hostages can come home safely.”

Anchor Jon Karl questioned, “And what are the numbers as you understand it? I’ve heard the Israelis say that there are 239. Is that accurate? How many of them are Americans?”

“We do not know the precise number of hostages. We know the number of missing, and that’s the number the Israelis have given. But we don’t know how many of those are still alive,” Sullivan answered.

“As far as the Americans are concerned, there are nine missing American citizens, as well as a missing legal permanent representative, a green card holder. And so that’s the number that we are working with.”

“That’s the number that we are trying to ensure the safe return of. And we have been engaging with the families. In fact, I will personally be seeing family members of the American hostages this coming week.”
