Israeli military confirms 199 hostages abducted by Hamas and warns Hezbollah not to act

Tel Aviv (AFP) – “We have updated the families of 199 hostages,” says Israeli military spokesman Daniel Hagari, revising up an earlier figure of 155 captives, Israeli and foreigners alike, as he gives remarks on day 10 of the Gaza war. War erupted between Israel and Palestinian-based Hamas on October 7, triggered by a bloody attack by Hamas militants, killing 1,400 people in Israel. Israel has retaliated with strikes on Gaza that so far have claimed at least 2,700 lives.
