US resumes drone flights over Gaza to aid hostage rescue: Pentagon

The United States has resumed military drone flights over Gaza to aid in the search for hostages taken by the Palestinian militant group Hamas, the Pentagon said on Thursday.

The flights had been paused during the truce between Israel and Hamas, which collapsed last week.

“In support of hostage recovery efforts, the US has resumed unarmed UAV flights over Gaza, and we continue to provide advice and assistance to support our Israeli partner as they work on their hostage recovery efforts,” Lisa Lawrence, a Pentagon spokesperson, said in a statement, using an acronym for drones.
