We were deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of our compatriot Elia Toledano, whose remains were found in the Gaza Strip. This brings the number of French victims of Hamas to 41.
We share the pain of his family and loved ones, and offer them our heartfelt condolences and support at this difficult time.
This Sunday, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna will meet with the families of French citizens who have been missing since October 7.
France has made their release an absolute priority.
