Indian PM Narendra Modi on Friday condemned the death of civilians in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas group.

"We can all see that new challenges are emerging due to the incidents in West Asia," Modi said while addressing the second Voice of Global South Summit.

"India has condemned the attack on Israel. We condemn the violence inflicted on civilians," he said.

Meanwhile, the Israeli Defence Forces on Friday said they have recovered the body of a 65-year-old hostage, who was abducted by Hamas members on October 7, close to the Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza.

The hostage was identified as Yehudit Weiss.

IDF posted on X: "Yehudit Weiss was a 65-year-old who worked with kindergarten kids."

"On October 7, Yehudit was abducted by Hamas from her home in Kibbutz Be’eri. Her husband, Shmulik Weiss, was murdered in their home. Yehudit and Shmulik were parents to 5 children," the defence body said.

IDF said its soldiers recovered her body from a building adjacent to the Shifa Hospital in Gaza.

"AK-47s, RPGs, and other military equipment were also found where Yehudit's body was located," IDF posted on X.

She was one of the 240 persons taken as hostages by Hamas during the October 7 attack.
