Return home of four Israeli hostages – statement

We should all celebrate the rescue and return home of the four Israeli hostages whose families have endured 8 months of terror and have now been reunited with their loved ones.

To see the relief of parents welcoming home their children was a joy to behold.

Innocent Palestinian lives were also tragically lost in their rescue. This awful bloodshed will not stop until all hostages are released and a ceasefire is agreed to.

Since the terrorist attacks of October 7 I have repeatedly demanded Hamas release all hostages.

This must happen, coupled with a ceasefire and negotiations for enduring peace and safety for all Israelis and Palestinians.
