In a recent interview with the BBC, 19-year-old Itay Regev, who was kidnapped by the extremist group during a music festival on the day of the attack on Israel, made an appeal about the need for “return the hostages at any cost.”

According to Regev, the conditions of captivity in Gaza are “horrible” and the kidnappers are “very, very cruel.” For the young man, Both the Israeli government and the international community must “do everything” to recover those kidnapped.

“I'm sure if someone had their child kidnapped, they wouldn't really care about the price that needed to be paid. We need to return the hostages at any cost.” declared Itav Regev.

Hamas presents ceasefire proposal

On March 15, according to information from the Reuters agency, Hamas presented a new proposal for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, which, for Israel, contains “unrealistic demands”.
