Returning hostages are greeted by a cheering crowd in Ofakim:
Arabic television has broadcast footage of Red Cross vehicles carrying the hostages out of Gaza, through the Rafa Crossing, into Egypt.
The "livestream" broadcasting the release of hostages from Gaza on international networks was not actually live, as evidenced by the fact that it missed the release. Also, the livestream showed daylight while it was night in the region.
The former hostages were flown by IAF helicopter from Egypt to Israel, and are receiving treatment at a military base.
