Abigail Mor Edan, Youngest U.S. Citizen Held by Hamas, Released as Part of Cease-Fire Agreement

Abigail Mor Edan, the youngest U.S. citizen held by Hamas, was released as part of a cease-fire and hostage exchange agreement between Israel and the militant group. Abigail's parents were killed in Hamas' Oct. 7 attacks on Israel, and her release is part of a fragile truce between Israel and Hamas, which has seen Israel release Palestinian prisoners and allow aid into the Gaza Strip. Her release was confirmed by both President Biden and the Israeli military and was facilitated by Qatari Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani.
