Ofir Engel was at his girlfriend's home in the kibbutz Be'eir on October 7 this year, when Hamas attacked. After being hidden in the house's bomb shelter for several hours, Ofir was captured along with his father-in-law.

"When they kidnapped me, I was insanely scared. I froze," he says.

Netanyahu on the ceasefire: The right decision

An estimated 240 people were taken hostage by Hamas during the October <> terror attack.

During a six-day ceasefire at the end of November, 105 of the detainees, including Ofir Engel, were released.

"It's a difficult decision that has to be made tonight, but it's the right one," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said as the country's government approved the agreement that provides for a ceasefire and the release of Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the release of some hostages.

Hamas is said to have released videos

According to the BBC, the Israeli military believes that around 20 people of the 132 still in captivity are dead.

The situation for the others is unclear, but according to CNN, Hamas released video footage on Monday purportedly showing three elderly men being held hostage.

"I think you should understand that we don't have much time left," a relative of one of the men in the video told CNN.

Meanwhile, Hamas's top political leader, Isamil Haniya, is now in Egypt to discuss a possible new release in exchange for a ceasefire.
