The Hamas terror group has released a second batch of hostages, as Israel confirms releasing over 30 Palestinian detainees.

Israel has confirmed that over a dozen hostages have been released by Hamas as part of a second batch of freed abductees, after an earlier delay by the terror group sparked fears that the hostages-for-prisoners swap deal might fall apart.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement Saturday that representatives from the Red Cross had just handed over 17 hostages, including 13 Israelis and 4 Thai abductees, and that the individuals are now on Israeli soil waiting to be reunited with loved ones.
