Niece of Rescued Argentine from Hamas Describes Emotionally Overwhelming Hug

From Captivity to Reunification: Israeli Forces Rescue Argentinian Hostages and Family of Young Israeli Journalist Guefen Ilan

Guefen Sigal Ilan, a young Israeli with Argentinian citizenship, was overjoyed to hear that her uncle, Fernando Simón Marman, had been rescued from a Hamas hideout by Israeli forces. Fernando was one of two Argentines who were rescued along with Norberto Louis Har, who is Guefen’s mother’s boyfriend.

Guefen expressed her gratitude to the Israeli National Security Service for their efforts in the rescue operation and met with the head of the Argentine embassy in Tel Aviv and Ambassador Eyal Sela in Buenos Aires to express her hopes for the release of the remaining hostages.

Guefen was able to greet her uncle and Louis at the hospital in Tel Aviv, where rescued hostages are taken for check-ups and rehabilitation. She was happy to see them but also noted their physical changes after being held captive for four months.

Unfortunately, Fernando and Louis did not provide many details about their captivity, but Guefen expressed her gratitude to the soldiers and the Israeli National Security Service for rescuing her uncle and Louis. She also acknowledged the sacrifices made by the soldiers in the operation and hopes for negotiations to bring about the freedom of all 134 hostages.

Guefen recounted that both Fernando and Louis were held captive along with her aunt, mother, and cousin but were separated from them when they were released. They did not see any other hostages during their captivity. Guefen felt relieved that her loved ones were safe but also concerned about those who are still missing.
