Together with the woman released on Saturday, all three Hungarian hostages falling under the agreement between Israel and Hamas — the women and children — have been freed, he said.

“I thanked my Qatari colleague for aiding the release of Hungarian hostages as they promised earlier,” Szijjarto said.

The two girls, 8-year-old Ella and 15-year-old Dafna Eljakim, are dual citizens with a Hungarian mother. Their father’s family was killed when Hamas attacked southern Israel in early October.
