[03-12-2023 04:48 PM]

Ammon News - The UK Ministry of Defence will conduct surveillance flights over Gaza to help locate hostages taken by Hamas on October 7.

The UK government said it has been working with other countries “to secure the release of hostages, including British nationals, who have been kidnapped."

It will conduct surveillance flights over the Eastern Mediterranean, including over Israel and Gaza, as part of the operation. The government did not say when or how many of these flights will take place.

“Surveillance aircraft will be unarmed, do not have a combat role, and will be tasked solely to locate hostages,” the statement said, adding that “only information relating to hostage rescue will be passed to the relevant authorities responsible for hostage rescue.”

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office did not respond to a question on the number of British nationals believed to be held hostage in Gaza.
