Tel Aviv, Nov 26 (BPNS)
The families of the hostages, together with the diplomatic team of the Hostages and Missing Persons Families Forum headquarters, sent an urgent letter to the Qatari delegation that arrived in Israel on Saturday. The forum has requested an immediate meeting with the Qatar delegation.
In their appeal, they emphasize the need for immediate action from Qatar to release the hostages. The families urgently requested a meeting with the delegation.
Among the signatories on the letter sent by Emily Moatti, Head of the Forum’s Diplomatic Team, were twelve former ambassadors including Mark Sofer, Colette Avital, Rafi Gamzu, Yael Herzel, and Nadav Tamir.
It may be noted that Qatar is playing a pivotal role in the release of hostages under the custody of Hamas and the arrival of the high level delegation from the Emirate of Qatar to Israel is considered to be for an extension of ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
Already 14 hostages from Israel and 3 foreign hostages were released by Hamas on Sunday.
