Washington, D.C. - House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement on Israel rescuing four hostages. 


"This morning brought incredible news that four Israeli hostages kidnapped by Hamas terrorists and kept in captivity in Gaza were rescued by Israeli forces. The news of the return of Noa Argamani, Andrey Kozlov, Almog Meir, and Shlomi Ziv is welcomed and celebrated in the United States and around the world. 

During my recent delegation to Israel, I had the opportunity to meet with Shlomi Ziv’s brave mother and strong sister to hear about their tremendous loss and heartbreak since Shlomi was taken hostage and their determination to continue to believe and work to bring him home. I was incredibly moved by their love of their beloved son and brother. 

God Bless these families, many of whom I have met with. And while today is incredible news, I am praying for all the families who are still waiting for their loved ones to come home. 

I will continue to do all that I can to support Israel to bring ALL the hostages home."
