DOHA/JERUSALEM, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Israel launched a special forces operation that freed two Israeli hostages in Rafah amid air strikes early on Monday, which local health officials said killed 37 people and wounded dozens in the southern Gaza city.

A joint operation by the Israel Defence Force (IDF), Israel’s domestic Shin Bet security service and the Special Police Unit in Rafah freed Fernando Simon Marman, 60, and Louis Hare, 70, the Israeli military said.

The two men were kidnapped by Hamas from Kibbutz Nir Yitzhak on Oct. 7, the military said.

    You said that 2 hostages lives weren’t worth other deaths. If, as you say,all life is sacred, why are the hostages lives not sacred? My response was you would feel differently if you were a hostage, and you just doubled down. You mouth peaceful wishes now, when the most peaceful way is to release the hostages. You are being hypothetical
