Hamas releases 8 Israeli hostages

(Tel Aviv)  --  Six more Israeli hostages have been released by Hamas into Red Cross custody, just hours after two others were released.  

This as Israel and the Palestinian militant group agreed to extend their temporary ceasefire deal another day.  

As part of the extension of the truce, Israel will also release more Palestinian detainees from Israeli prisons.  

Officials in Gaza report one-point-seven million people have been displaced with the death toll surpassing 14-thousand-500, while the IDF estimates 12-hundred people were killed during the October 7th attack on Israel by Hamas.
