American Hostages Released By Hamas

October 20, 2023

…two American citizens held by Hamas since October 7th were released.

U.S. Sec. of State Blinken says 10 more Americans remain hostages in Hamas custody. The State Dept. has not commented on specific identities, physical/emotion condition or experience of the 2 Americans – reportedly a mother and daughter from the Chicago-area.

“In response to Qatari efforts, Al-Qassam Brigades released two American citizens (a mother and her daughter) for humanitarian reasons, and to prove to the American people and the world that the claims made by Biden and his fascist administration are false and baseless.

Hamas spokesperson Abu Obaida on Friday, October 20th, nearly two weeks since the terrorist group launched a deadly attack on Israel.

Why It Matters: This marks the first significant hostage release since the Hamas-led terrorist attack nearly two weeks ago. An estimated 200 people remain abducted by Hamas, including more than a dozen Americans. The hostages include citizens from more than two dozen different countries.
