Gaza: Hamas Kept Women Hostages in Cages, Forced Children to Watch Videos of October 7 Massacre

Gaza: Hamas Kept Women Hostages in Cages, Forced Children to Watch Videos of October 7 Massacre

Palestinian mobs jeer and threaten Israeli hostages as they leave terrorist-controlled Gaza.

As some of the Israeli hostages return home after nearly 50 days of captivity, horrific details about their abduction and treatment by the terrorist group Hamas are coming to light.

Abducted women were kept in cages. Hostages, including children, were beaten and deprived of food, the Israeli media reports. At least in one instance, Hamas abductors forced Israeli hostages, including a 12-year-old child, to watch the horrific videos of October 7 atrocities.

“Twelve-year-old Eitan Yahalomi, who was kidnapped from Nir Oz to Gaza alone, was returned to Israel Monday night after 52 days in Hamas captivity. His relatives talked about the horrors he went through in captivity,” the Israeli news website Ynet reported Tuesday. “Eitan’s aunt said this morning that he “experienced horrors” at the hands of Hamas terrorists, who, among other things, beat him, forced him to watch footage of the massacre they carried out on October 7, and threatened him and the other children they kidnapped with guns when they cried.”

Before letting the hostages go, Hamas terrorists forced some of them to write letters praising their captors, many of whom had brutalized and murdered their family members and loved ones during the October 7 massacre.

The Jerusalem Post reported some of the hostage testimonies on Tuesday:

Women who were abducted from Israeli territory and held hostage by Hamas in Gaza were kept in cages, according to a report by Israeli media, citing a statement from a member of the Hostages and Missing Families Forum.

This claim is not the first of its kind: In the days immediately following the October 7 attacks, videos from Hamas’s Telegram channel showed child hostages being kept in cages for the majority of their time in captivity. (…)

Hamas distributed a letter on Monday allegedly written by Danielle Aloni, who was kidnapped alongside her 5-year-old daughter Emilia and held in captivity. (…) This letter is one of many that hostages were forced to write, according to Israeli media reports. (…)

Some of the hostages spoke of their worry about last-minute attempts by Hamas or Gazans – who had thrown stones at the vehicles taking them to Egypt – to attack them before they got home. “Until the last moment we weren’t sure,” a hostage said: “We thought they would lynch us on the way to Israel.”

Videos of the hostage release, stage-managed by Hamas, show Gaza residents jeering and threatening Israeli hostages as they leave the terrorist-controlled territory in a Red Cross caravan. The hostages were ordered to smile and wave at Hamas captors in a depraved bid to bolster the image of the terrorist group.

Palestinians on the streets can be seen hugging and cheering the terrorists of Hamas and Islamic Jihad (PIJ) as they came out of their tunnels and bunkers for the hostage release. Gaza civilians celebrated the hostages-for-terrorist deal as a victory for their cause, and greeted terrorists with chants of  ‘Allahu Akbar.’

More details are yet to come as most of the hostages have not spoken about their ordeal in public and are receiving necessary medical attention. “Freed hostages have mostly kept out of the public eye since their return. Any details about their ordeal have come through relatives, who have not revealed much,” the newspaper Israel Hayom noted Tuesday. “This round of releases has seen mostly women and children freed. They have been undergoing physical and psychological tests at Israeli hospitals before returning home.”

The behavior of Gazans is consistent with their support for Hamas’s October 7 massacre when they turned out in thousands to beat and humiliate Israeli hostages dragged from their homes from across the border. Ordinary Gaza residents were seen spatting on Israeli hostages as Hamas terrorists paraded them naked through the streets.

Hamas claims Israeli mother along with 4-year boy and 10-month baby ‘killed’ after handing them over to another terrorist group

Hamas on Wednesday claimed that an Israeli mother, Shira Bibas, and her two children, a four-year-old and a 10-month-old baby, were ‘killed’ after they were handed over to another terrorist group in Gaza. The IDF is checking the validity of the claim.

The Times of Israel reported:

The Israel Defense Forces says it has notified the Bibas family of a Hamas statement regarding three of the family members who are being held hostage by the terror group.

Hamas claimed earlier today, in an unverified statement, that mother Shira, four-year-old Ariel and 10-month-old baby Kfir were killed.

“The Hamas terror organization continues to act in a cruel and inhumane manner,” the IDF says, adding that it is investigating the veracity of the information published by Hamas.

The Bibas family, including baby Kfir, was transferred by Hamas to another Palestinian terror group in Gaza, according to the IDF.

Kfir was kidnapped by Hamas from Kibbutz Nir Oz along with his brother Ariel and parents Yarden, 34, and Shiri, 32, when terrorists rampaged through southern communities on October 7.

Netanyahu: Israel “going back to fighting until the end” after ceasefire

Amid reports that Israel may extend the ceasefire for a couple of more days to secure the release of additional hostages, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu assured that the military will resume the Gaza offensive aimed at eliminating Hamas once the truce ends. “There is no way we are not going back to fighting until the end,” the Israeli leader vowed on Wednesday. “This is my policy, the entire cabinet stands behind it, the entire government stands behind it, the soldiers stand behind it, the people stand behind it – this is exactly what we will do.”

Life long damage. And FJB could care less…. actually… less than less.

NO ONE should ever give to the Red Cross again.

    I had an allotment going to them every month for years, given they were always ‘on the railhead’ during major deployments in another life.

    However, once they started to allocate donations as they saw fit (e.g., you donate to, say, Katrina recovery and they, in turn, decide your money would be better used in Kaliforniastan), I pulled out. #NeverAgain

      Same here. I donated a personally significant amount for Katrina relief only to find out later they had already raised all they wanted for Katrina and were simply telling we marks that more money would go to Katrina.

      Fool me once….

THESE savages are who the left are siding with.

When Israel is finished, there shouldn’t be a single blade of grass in Gaza left undisturbed. Unfortunately, I’m hugely worried that once the hostage exchanges begin to dry up, Biden’s handlers will then instruct CIA to initiate ‘populist’ protests against Bibi (exactly like they did over the summer) to cripple him and force his resignation. He can then be replaced by someone more obedient to DC progressives. Clearly the Administration is already signaling that they’re beginning the process of neutering the IDF.

I hope the Israelis are smart enough to see through it…and push through it, finishing Hamas once and for all. If they don’t, this will happen again, and again, and again.

I guess I miss the exploitation narrative when these savages do this. What does this go to do with the unoccupied land they claim is occupied?

There are no innocent Palestinians

    I tend to agree, but have taken the 75% number of Gazans supporting Hamas at face value. That 75% must die, and there should be little concern about collateral damage. We are looking at people who knowingly conceive children as weapons, raise them in poverty and intentional turn them into monsters.

    There are also no Palestinians, since Arabs cannot be Palestinians, who were Greek and died out long before Christianity and Islam.

    But yes, these evil Arabs should be killed and Gaza returned to Israel. Same for Judea & Samaria.

Nine Americans are still being held hostage by Hamas. The only American released, a 4-year-old girl, just happened to be the niece of a Democrat donor who bought Hunter Biden’s “watercolor artworks.”

    “Dad, this is Hunter. Could you please have your people contact Hamas and put in a good word for one of my clients.”

I don’t know if it is affecting anyone else this way, but the combination of Hamas savagery, the cheering of Hamas savagery and crime acceptance by the same crowd boasting “hate has no home here,” is giving me brutal nightmares of serial killers and murder.

    There are reasons some American Jews are buying guns. They are starting to realize that ‘Never Again’ is not a magic incantation. It must be backed up with the ability to physically defend themselves against those who want to exterminate them.

    Reasonable people can make serious criticisms of the Israeli government over the years, but Palestinians have chosen genocidal psychopaths to lead them.

    Hamas was founded explicitly to exterminate the Jews, reconquer all the formerly conquered lands such as Spain and Greece, and extend sharia to the rest of the world. They said so in their founding document. Google ‘Hamas Covenant Yale law library’ and read it yourself, in their own words.

    What more does one need to know?

We keep kids in cages, called play pens.

My heart goes out to the hostages, I don’t we have heard the worst of the atrocities from those released.

My mother joined the Red Cross during World War II. After the War she volunteered to go to Germany to help with the humanitarian rebuilding of the country. The Red Cross at that time was a blessing.

So the Gazans aren’t innocent in war crimes and mistreatment of hostages (who aren’t even enemy combatants)….surprise surprise.

I’m reading a history of the British Mandate for Palestine, One Palestine, Complete. At the beginning of the book, the reader is introduced to an Arab named Sakakini. He’s an educator by trade, cultured and literate. He seems a decent chap, harboring a Jew from the Turks in the days just before the British drive them (the Turks) out.

But later, when the Arabs begin a campaign of terror to drive the Jews out of Palestine, Sakakini praises murderers, train bombers, assassins, and anyone else who kills Jews (and British). They also destroy roads and railways, burn farms, and attack schools, anything Western/European, rejecting even literacy as “Jewish.”

Sakakini wasn’t a Muslim, he was a Christian Arab, demonstrating that hate for the Jews and admiration for, and the emulation of, the worst cowards, destroyers of Western culture, and enemies of civilization didn’t originate with Islam, but is ingrained in Arab culture. Islam merely harnessed the hate.

    Or alternatively, perhaps it only proves that some people’s principles run no deeper than whatever is the current public opinion.

When you realize that the Palestinians are yelling awful things at the poor Hostages who have just been through Hell, you finally realize that THEY are no better than Hamas ! They are EVIL and HATEFILLED, just like Hamas.
