The Last Time Hamas Released A Hostage, It Took 5 Years For Him To Be Freed. 1 Soldier Was Exchanged For 1,027 Palestinian Prisoners

Now imagine they have 170 - 200 Israeli hostages.

Hamas has said it has no plans to release any of the hostages, and a senior leader in the militant group [said] earlier this month that “this file will not be opened until the end of the battle.”

The last time Hamas released a hostage was in 2011, when it freed the IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.

Shalit was a young conscript in the Israeli military when he was captured by Hamas in 2006. The Israeli army responded to the kidnapping by launching airstrikes at the Gaza Strip, and Jerusalem finally secured Shalit’s release five years later by agreeing to swap 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Shalit.
