(Townhall) The State Department revealed Monday the reason why Hamas continues to hold hostages underground is the Gaza Strip. More specifically, why they are refusing to release female hostages.
State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller: “one of the reasons [Hamas doesn’t] want to turn women over that they’ve been holding hostage — and the reason this pause fell apart — is they don’t want those women to talk about what happened to them.”pic.twitter.com/9gW7YArRkp

“Right now Hamas is refusing to release civilian women who should have been part of the agreement and it is that refusal by Hamas that has caused the end of the hostage agreement and therefore an end to the pause in hostilities,” White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan added during the daily press briefing, saying the administration is still working to get Americans out. “Israel is insisting on the release of those women.”
