The British-Israeli son of an elderly woman who was taken hostage by Hamas has said she has been freed from captivity.

Noam Sagi’s 75-year-old mother Ada Sagi was taken from her home in Kibbutz Nir Oz on October 7 after the militant group crossed the border into Israel.

She had been due to celebrate her birthday with family in London just days after she was taken hostage, Mr Sagi previously told a press conference.

Mr Sagi, a London-based psychotherapist, said his mother was freed on Tuesday evening after a pause in the fighting in Gaza was extended by two days.

He said in a statement: “I can confirm that my mum, Ada Sagi, has been released tonight.

“For our family, this is a moment we have dreamt of and worked for every minute of every day since October 7. 

“It will be hard to believe it is true until we are able to embrace in person. Our first priority is my mum’s mental and physical health and we ask for time and space while we prioritise her wellbeing.

“Seeing my mum will be a moment of unparalleled relief and joy for us personally but comes against a backdrop of unparalleled grief and sorrow for our community.

“For many families, including friends and neighbours, the tragedy is ongoing as long as their family members remain hostage, and the traumas they have suffered will leave scars that might never heal.

“We call on every government, international agency and NGO to do whatever it takes to get every man, woman and child taken hostage on October 7 back where they belong – with their families.

“Enough with the games and enough with the psychological torture. Bring them home. Bring them all home, and do it now.”
