Well actually, everyone who has been kidnapped in Gaza has been treated well, and all have been released unharmed. Add to the fact that Alan is well known as someone who wants the Palestinian voice to be heard, no one, not even his captors would want to bring harm to him. He has a lot of respect, both in Gaza and around the world.
Katya Adler, Orla Guerin and Caroline Hawley are names that regularly report from occupied Palestinian territories, but they’re largely based in the West Bank.
Hamas have, thankfully, talked down the possibility of any military action.
