‘Our main mission’: IDF working to bring hostages taken by Hamas ‘back home safely’

Israeli Defence Forces Spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Amnon Shefler says the Israeli Defence Force is working “anyway” that they can in order to bring Hamas’ hostages “back home safely”.

Mr Shefler says there are still “239 hostages” since the October 7th attacks.

“Dozens more still uncounted for,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“We’re working in any way that we can in order to bring them back home safely.

“This is our main mission including the mission to dismantle Hamas.”
