Israeli hostages meeting their families after being released/X

Four hostages released from Hamas' captivity were reunited with their families at Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan on Saturday. The pictures of the hostages meeting their family and friends after 8 months are very emotional and tear-jerking. The hostages' loved ones are overjoyed to see their loved ones back safe and sound and they are not tired of praising the Israeli army.

In the last 8 months, the Israeli army has attempted to carry out 3 more such operations, but the most successful operation has been Operation Arnon, in which 4 hostages Noa Arghamani, Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov, and Shlomi Ziv were rescued from Hamas captivity and brought back to Israel.

There is no army like the Israeli army

In footage released by the IDF, Noa's father, Yaakov Argamani, thanked the Israeli army for rescuing his daughter. Hugging his daughter and standing next to a masked soldier who was presumably involved in the operation, he said, "There is no army like the Israeli army in the world."

In other footage, Kozlov is seen saying he was aware of the weekly Saturday evening demonstrations calling for the release of the hostages. He is later seen hugging fellow rescued hostage Mir Jan. Both are surrounded by doctors and family members in the photographs.

I had fun meeting my friends

In the evening, Jaan was reunited with his friends. In the video clip, he can be seen coming towards them with his hands outstretched, and seeing him, his friends also rush towards him. They clap in joy and then rush to embrace him, shouting slogans that he is one of us and we will not leave him!
