Twelve Thai nationals were released from Gaza on Friday, Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
It said the 12 hostages have passed through the Rafah crossing and are on the way to Israel’s Hatzerim air base, and will then be taken to a hospital.
The ministry says 39 Thai citizens were killed in Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack in Israel and 26 were taken hostage.
Egypt’s state information service said the 12 Thais is in addition to 13 Israeli captives who are to be freed Friday.
Fifty hostages and 150 Palestinian prisoners are to be freed under a Qatar-brokered four-day ceasefire deal.
