Man who negotiated 2011 Hamas prisoner swap says ‘time is running out’ to free hostages

Gershon Baskin, who negotiated a 2011 prisoner swap to release an Israeli soldier from Hamas, urged that “time is running out” to rescue hostages who were taken in the Oct. 7 terror attack.

Baskin joined “FOX & Friends” on Wednesday to emphasize the need for Israel to make a deal in order to safely rescue hostages before the war escalates.

“Time is running out, the clock is ticking. The window of opportunity is going to close once the Israeli ground incursion begins. And we need to do everything possible to get as many of the hostages out, especially women, children, elderly and sick people,” he said.
