Hamas and Israel completed an initial hostage/prisoner exchanges in late November 2023 (France 24). As of 27 November 2023, it is believed that 183 hostages were still being held by Hamas and others in Gaza as negotiations continue (Times of Israel, ABC News). Israel announcing that a hostage or hostages are presumed dead would count as to those particular hostages, and whether an Israeli citizen holds dual citizenship is immaterial.
