"We were very pleased to learn that among the Israelis held in the Gaza Strip who were handed over to the Israeli authorities on November 24 was Yaffa Adar, an 85-year-old Holocaust survivor. We sincerely welcome her release and note that this was made possible, among other things, due to the persistent efforts of Russian elements in close cooperation with the Israeli side, in particular with Israel's Intelligence Minister Gila Gamliel, and other stakeholders in the region."
