US confirms sending drones to Gaza to help search for hostages

The Armed Forces of deer already deployed drones on Gaza Strip to collect information that allows the location of hostages in the hands of Hamas, according to the North American Department of Defense, which separates this type of activities from the strict military offensive carried out on the ground by the Israeli Army.

A spokesman for the Pentagon, Pat Ryder, said that these flights were “in support of hostage recovery efforts,” according to a statement sent to Europa Press. The flights, he explained, “started after the October 7 attacks”, referring to the attacks carried out by Hamas on Israeli soil.

More than 240 people

The United States is working with Israel to find more than 240 people who remain detained in the Strip, where there are also North American citizens – about a dozen, according to CNN -. Palestinian militants barely escaped four of these hostages, claimed Humanitarian reasonsand disseminated videos to others as a means of propaganda and pressure on the Government of Benjamin Netanyahu.

The prime minister of Israel made it clear on Friday that he will not accept anything temporary ceasefire in Gaza if it does not mean the release of hostages, on a day where he also met again in person with the Secretary of State of the United States, Antony Blinken, who began a new visit to the region.
