Israel-Hamas war news: 13 Israeli and 4 Thai captives released from Gaza during pause in fighting

Israeli officials received a list of the hostages held in the Gaza Strip due to be released Sunday, the prime minister’s office said. Their family members have been notified, it said, without specifying their identities or how many are in the group — the third due to be released since fighting paused. The release of hostages on Saturday was delayed by seven hours after allegations from Hamas, including that Israel was not allowing humanitarian aid to reach parts of northern Gaza. After the agreed pause in combat ends, Israeli military leaders said they would resume efforts to eliminate Hamas and free remaining hostages. “We will return to our operations with determination,” the Israeli military’s chief of staff, Gen. Herzi Halevi, told forces Sunday.
