These hostages were allegedly kidnapped by Hamas from the Nova music festival during their October 7 attack against Israel that led to responsive action against Gaza. 

The Israel Defense Force's Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari claimed that the rescue operation was planned for weeks using "precise intelligence".
