Negotiations between Hamas and Israel continue for, among other things, the release of hostages taken in the early October 2023 attack on the country by Hamas and other groups (CNN). As of 10 April 2024, Israel stated that 133 hostages were still being held, but that 36 of them were confirmed dead (MSN). 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.
