Middle East expert reveals Hamas’ ‘tactic’ after releasing two further hostages | Avi Melamed on SKY NEWS First Edition |

Former Israeli Intelligence Officer Avi Melamed says Hamas releasing two more hostages is part of the Palestinian militant group’s tactic.

The release of the two elderly Israeli women comes after Hamas set free Americans Judith Raanan, 60, and her teenage daughter Natalie, following Qatari mediation efforts last Friday.

Israel confirmed the number of hostages being held by Hamas has risen to 222.

Mr Melamed said Hamas is trying to “manipulate the whole story of the hostages” and hopes to keep delaying and possibly “defuse” the IDF’s ground invasion of Gaza, which is aimed at ending their rule.

“So, what we see is what I call the Salami System,” he told Sky News Australia.
