One of those released is 4-year-old Avigail Keinan, whose parents Roi and Smadar Idan were murdered in their Kfar Azza home during the massacre. Avigail was left in the house and taken to another house where she was eventually taken into captivity. She will now return to her two older siblings who survived the massacre.

Another family which will be reunited is the Brodetz family, including a wife and three children in captivity who will return to their father and husband.

One of the hostages, an elderly woman, was found in serious condition and taken to Soroka hospital for emergency treatment.

According to all international and US law, the health and safety of every kidnap victim is 100% the responsibility of the kidnappers. If
G-d forbid a hostage is harmed in a rescue attempt, the responsibility is still with the rasha kidnappers.
