Israel-Gaza war: Hamas video claims to show dead hostages
Hamas released a new video claiming to depict the bodies of two Israeli hostages, alleging their deaths resulted from Israeli air strikes on Gaza. This follows a prior video showing the hostages alive, accompanied by a warning of potential harm if Israel’s bombardment continued.
hostages were killed by strikes
Israel refuted the claim that the hostages were killed by strikes, with the defence minister accusing Hamas of psychological abuse. He emphasised the necessity of military pressure to secure the release of additional hostages.
Israel is fighting back on PR level, after receiving international condemnation for its invasion and genocide in Gaza and the West Bank. The country was on the verge of a civil war with Bibi Netanyahu on the verge of impeachment before he formed an emergency government to start the war.
Questions have been asked by Israeli journalists on how Hamas were allowed 6 hours to create havoc in Israel whilst the IDF were sitting idly by. Israel is not a big country, it takes less than 50 mins to travel by air from one side to the other. Not responding for 6 hours and watching idly by – from a presumed ‘stand-down order’ whilst hostages were killed makes the IDF & Netanhayu complicit in the crimes.
The video on Monday featured Noa Argamani, coerced into stating that the two men she was held with, including Itay Svirsky, 38, were killed in captivity by “our own IDF strikes.”
