Over the past day, the IDF completed preparations for receiving the hostages released from captivity in the Gaza Strip upon their return to Israel. The IDF, in coordination with government ministries and security authorities, have prepared to quickly receive the released hostages and give them all the necessary support. As part of the preparations, the IDF has readied several locations dedicated to the initial reception of the released hostages, including with necessary medical provisions and support. After the initial reception and medical treatment, the released hostages will continue to hospitals, where they will be reunited with their families.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit requests patience and sensitivity from the public and the media. We ask everyone to respect the privacy of the released hostages and their families.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit asks that the public refer to official updates and announcements only, and refrain from enabling the weaponization of psychological terror by terrorist organizations.

All the released hostages will receive special noise-cancelling headphones that were bought especially for them and are suitable for children in order to make the flight experience easier and provide them with peace and quiet.
On board each helicopter will be a medical team from Unit 669, which will include a commander, three combat soldiers and two doctors. In addition, along with the released hostages, there will be personnel from the IDF Manpower Directorate, who will accompany them throughout the process.
The helicopter crew that will be taking the released hostages will be instructed to carry out their mission with courtesy, modesty, patience and appropriate demeanor.
The personnel will introduce themselves by name with a visible face and a smile, maintain eye contact and distance in order to allow the caregivers and support teams to do their work in the best possible way.
This will include four helicopters, three “Yasours” and a “Yanshouf.”
