At least 222 hostages have been abducted to the Gaza Strip after the terrorist attack by the Islamist Hamas movement, according to the Israeli army.
The relatives of the abductees have been informed, army spokesman Daniel Hagari said on Monday.
Among the hostages are German citizens, with whom, however, the German government has no contact.
The army assumes that most of the hostages are still alive. Two US hostages were released on Friday.
More than 1,000 terrorists attacked Israel on behalf of Hamas on October 7, carrying out massacres in the border area. Since then, Israel has suffered more than 1,400 deaths.
In response to the massacres, Israel launched airstrikes on the densely populated Gaza Strip. According to the Hamas-controlled Ministry of Health in Gaza, more than 4,650 people have been killed there. The numbers could not be independently verified.
