Biden Administration Calls for Negotiations, Ceasefire After Israel Rescues 4 Hostages


White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan released a statement addressing the news that the IDF, Israel Security Agency (ISA), and the Israeli police had conducted a joint operation rescuing four hostages, who had been taken by Hamas on October 7, 2023, from the Supernova Music Festival.

Sullivan noted in his statement that the United States government was "supporting all efforts to secure the release" of the remaining hostages held by Hamas, and went on to encourage efforts such as conducting "ongoing negotiations" and pointed to a "hostage release and ceasefire deal" that he said "has the full backing of the United States."

"The United States is supporting all efforts to secure the release of hostages still held by Hamas, including American citizens," Sullivan said in his statement. "This includes through ongoing negotiations or other means. The hostage release and ceasefire deal that is now on the table would secure the release of all the remaining hostages together with security assurances for Israel and relief for the innocent civilians in Gaza."

Four hostages, Noa Argamani, 25; Almog Meir Jan, 21,; Andrey Kozlov, 27; and Shlomi Ziv, 40, were rescued in a joint operation conducted by the IDF, ISA, and the Israeli police, the IDF said in a statement on X.

Argamani has been one of the most widely recognized of the hostages after video footage surfaced of her abduction from the music festival.

The hostages were reported to have been rescued from two different locations "in the heart of Nuseirat," a Palestinian refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

In the video footage of her abduction, Argamani can be heard screaming and attempting to reach for her boyfriend as she is seen being driven away on a motorcycle.
