Hamas released 24 hostages, including 13 Israeli women and children, and Israel released 39 Palestinian women and children from prisons during a pause in fighting in Gaza.

The deal, mediated by Qatar and involving the Biden administration, aims to release more hostages, with Israel extending the pause for every 10 additional hostages released by Hamas.

While the pause is welcomed, humanitarian groups warn that four days is not enough to address the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, and Israel plans to continue the war to secure the release of all hostages and eliminate the threat from Hamas. (Trending: SNL Legend Unleashes On Democrats)

Israeli Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement proclaiming, “The Israeli government hugs all Israeli citizens who returned home today.”

“The Israeli government is committed to return all those who were kidnapped and those who are still missing,” continued the statement.

Biden reportedly remarked that the deal was “only a start, but so far, it’s gone well.”

“All of these hostages have been through a terrible ordeal and this is the beginning of a long journey of healing for them,” added Biden.

“We know Hamas are holding at least 70-80 women and children and that we can get all of them,” reported Israeli officials to the media.

There is still a divide between how to provide humanitarian aide to citizens in Gaza while Israel is destroying Hamas and their infrastructure.
