Hamas is ready to release hostages held in Gaza but isn’t able to do so under Israeli bombing, an official from Iran, a major Hamas backer, said Monday.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani said that any move to free the civilians would “require preparations that are impossible under daily bombardment by the Zionists against various parts of Gaza.” Iran provides the militant group with funding and has praised Hamas’ deadly attacks on Israel that left 1,400 people dead and almost 200 others captive.
