‘Please strike a deal’, says relative of released Israeli hostage

Ramat Gan (Israel) (AFP) – “Please be serious and strike a deal”, pleads Idan Bejerano, the son-in-law of Luis Har, one of the relatives rescued from captivity in an Israeli army operation in Rafah, in southern Gaza. Fernando Simon Marman, 60, and Louis Har, 70, were rescued amid an intense firefight and heavy airstrikes, then airlifted to a hospital where they were declared in good health despite more than four months in captivity. Israelis welcomed the rescue, but fears of a looming ground incursion are growing among more than a million Palestinians trapped in the territory’s far south.
