During a visit by French Foreign Minister Stephane Sejournet, an official said Paris was working with Qatar to obtain evidence that the drugs had been delivered as promised in the deal with Hamas.
France wants evidence from Hamas that medicine sent for Israeli hostages held by terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip reached them, a member of the French Foreign Minister's entourage told The Times of Israel on Monday during a diplomat's visit to the country.
“We know that the drugs actually came into Gaza,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “The issues of their transfer to hostages were resolved through the mediation of Qatar. We now expect to receive verifiable evidence that the drugs have reached their beneficiaries.”
Minister Katz asked France to approach Qatar to obtain evidence. The French Foreign Minister responded that his country was already working on this issue and stated that “if it turns out that the medicines did not reach the abducted people, there will be serious consequences.”
At a press conference, Sejournet announced that his country is working with Israeli associations that provide assistance to victims of October 7 sexual violence.
