Israel’s main priority is to arrange for the release of the hostages kidnapped by Hamas during the group’s terrorist attacks on October 7, says former Israel justice minister Ayelet Shaked.

“We have two goals,” Ms Shaked told Sky News senior reporter Caroline Marcus.

“One is to bring back our hostages, we still have two babies in captivity, we have young women in captivity.

“The world knows they raped, brutally, our women before they murdered them.

“We need to get out the young women as soon as possible … we are doing all the efforts we can in order to release them.

“The second goal is to eliminate Hamas.”
