Representatives from a forum dedicated to the families of those taken hostage have conveyed essential medical details and medications used by the captives to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
The ICRC, only yesterday, reiterated its ongoing attempts to gain access to an estimated 150-200 hostages. In a statement, the ICRC expressed its deep concern for the families affected and renewed its call for the immediate release of the hostages, adding that they are prepared to conduct humanitarian visits.
The families’ forum, which started this initiative last night, is currently in the process of reaching out to other families to ensure that all crucial information is duly relayed.
Notably, among the hostages, several are believed to be elderly individuals and children.
