German Chancellor Olaf Scholz expressed optimism following the release of four hostages from Gaza during an Israeli military operation on Saturday. 

He described this development as a "significant sign of hope," particularly for the many Israeli families still fearing for their loved ones' safety.

In a message shared on the social media platform X, Chancellor Scholz emphasized the importance of this event. "A significant sign of hope - especially for the many Israeli families who continue to fear for their loved ones. Four hostages are now free. Hamas must finally release all the hostages. The war must end," he wrote.

The liberation of the hostages has been met with relief and cautious optimism from various international leaders and organizations. Many echo Chancellor Scholz’s call for Hamas to release all remaining hostages and for an end to the conflict.
