DOHA/JERUSALEM, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Israel launched a special forces operation that freed two Israeli hostages in Rafah amid air strikes early on Monday, which local health officials said killed 37 people and wounded dozens in the southern Gaza city.

A joint operation by the Israel Defence Force (IDF), Israel’s domestic Shin Bet security service and the Special Police Unit in Rafah freed Fernando Simon Marman, 60, and Louis Hare, 70, the Israeli military said.

The two men were kidnapped by Hamas from Kibbutz Nir Yitzhak on Oct. 7, the military said.

    Pretty obvious as you discount death of some but not others. Either only some life is cheap to you or you have no empathy because you have no experience.

      ??? You are talking nonsense. All life is sacred. No where did I say some should die to save others… discounting you as a troll and moving on with my life. Peace be with you brother, I hope you find your calm.

        You said that 2 hostages lives weren’t worth other deaths. If, as you say,all life is sacred, why are the hostages lives not sacred? My response was you would feel differently if you were a hostage, and you just doubled down. You mouth peaceful wishes now, when the most peaceful way is to release the hostages. You are being hypothetical
