Fourteen Thais, who were earlier reported missing following the Hamas attacks in Gaza last Saturday, have been located and rescued by Israeli defence forces.

According to The Times of Israel, the Israeli forces found the 14 Thai nationals and 16 Israelis near the Gaza border and all of them are now safe. No other details, including their identities, are available at this stage.

Israeli authorities believe that as many as 150 people have been kidnapped by Hamas militants since last Saturday.

18 Thai nationals are believed to have been killed.
