Israel-Gaza war live updates: Israeli military says soldier opened fire on hostages holding white flag

The three hostages mistakenly killed by Israeli forces in Gaza were carrying a makeshift white flag when a soldier “felt threatened and opened fire,” a senior Israeli military official said Saturday, adding that an investigation was underway and the killings were “against out rules of engagement.” The deaths have sparked outrage and protests in Israel, with a group representing families of hostages meeting urgently to discuss ways to raise pressure on Israeli leaders to secure the release of all hostages taken in the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas.
