The Filipino worker freed by the Palestinian militant group Hamas is set to receive social security benefits and regular stipends from the Israeli government.

Jimmy Pacheco, a caregiver working in Israel, was among the hostages released to the Red Cross in war-torn Gaza by Hamas.

The 33-year-old Filipino worker was among the 200 people taken hostage by Hamas during the October 7 attack. 

The Philippine Embassy in Tel Aviv said the Israeli government, “Will provide Jimmy and his immediate family lifetime social security benefits and regular stipends.”

The embassy added that Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen visited Pacheco at the hospital where he is recovering. 

Filipino national Noralyn Babadilla remains missing and is believed to be among the hostages of Hamas. 

A four-day ceasefire and a hostage-for-prisoner swap have brought the first significant relief to Gaza and Israel since October 7, when Hamas fighters launched an unprecedented assault, killing about 1,200 people and taking around 240 hostages.
