Over half of Hamas hostages hold foreign passports

Published

Hamas hostages possess foreign passports originating from 25 different nations.

In an update on the situation, the Israeli government also reported that 328 people from 40 countries have been confirmed as dead or missing following the unexpected attack by Hamas fighters on southern Israel that occurred on October 7. Tragically, this assault resulted in an estimated 1,400 casualties. Out of the hostages, 138 were found to possess foreign passports, including 15 Argentinians, 12 Germans, 12 Americans, six French, and six Russians.

While many hostages were believed to have dual Israeli nationality, it is apparent that some, such as the Thai and five Nepalese hostages, did not share this dual citizenship. Additionally, there was one Chinese hostage, one Sri Lankan, two from Tanzania, and two from the Philippines.

Of the foreign casualties and those still unaccounted for, Thais constituted the largest group, with 24 confirmed deaths and 21 individuals remaining missing.

Thailand, which is a significant source of migrant workers in Israel, with around 30,000 employed in the agriculture sector, is deeply affected by this crisis.

Other nations that experienced substantial losses include the United States, with 34 fatalities and five missing persons, Ukraine, with 25 deaths and two missing, France, with 23 casualties and one missing individual, and Russia, with 23 fatalities and four unaccounted for. China lost five citizens, and one remains missing, while Nepal suffered five fatalities and five people are still unaccounted for.
