Blinken: US has ‘pretty strong idea’ that some of missing Americans being held hostage by Hamas

With 10 Americans still unaccounted for more than two weeks after Hamas’ massacre in Israel, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Sunday said the terrorist group is believed to be holding at least some of them hostage in Gaza.

Blinken addressed the missing Americans during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” saying that the U.S. is still uncertain whether some of the unaccounted for are dead, with their bodies yet to be recovered, though a “significant number” are believed to be held hostage. 

“We’ve got 10 unaccounted for Americans,” Blinken said. “We believe that some significant number are hostages.”

He continued, reiterating that “we have a pretty strong idea that some number of the 10 at least are being held in Gaza by Hamas.”

“We’re going to get them all out, God willing,” Biden said in the video.
