Frustrated by the lack of progress in reaching a hostage deal, one of the families has established a protest station near IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv. While some families have been reunited with their missing loved ones over the past six months, others continue to fight for resolution.

Golodryga emphasizes the importance of remembering that these hostages are not just numbers but real people with families and loved ones. Their experiences have been unimaginable and sharing their stories with CNN and the world is an honor for both Golodryga and CNN.
