Nov 28, 2023

Washington DC (US), Nov 28 (ANI): Family members of the hostages who were abducted by Hamas last month, assembled outside the American Red Cross National Headquarters on November 27. They urged the international community to maintain pressure and demand the release of the hostages. The relatives held photos and invoked the names of their captured loved ones as they pleaded for help. Talking to ANI, Boaz Atzili whose cousin Aviv Atzilli was presumably taken hostage along with his wife Liat Atzilli from their hometown, says, “...Whether it’s Lashkar-e-Taiba or Hamas these attacks on civilians should not happen and we should all be united against any kind of act of terror... I just want to emphasize that this is not about Israel or Palestine. This is a humanitarian issue. There are people there from many countries. There are Jews and Muslims, Buddhists and Christians, and even some from India’s neighbours, Nepal, and Thailand. They should all come back home as soon as possible...”
