The two hostages freed in an overnight operation have said they were held captive in the home of a family in Rafah, the Ynet news site reports. According to the report, Fernando Marman, 61, and Louis Har, 70, told Sheba Medical Center, where they are now being treated, that the reason for their relatively good health despite being held hostage for 129 days was that they were imprisoned in a Gaza home -- the implication being that they were not held in a tunnel.
