Hamas Releases Video of 86-Year-Old Hostage, Claims Heart Attack and Shelling Killed Him

Hamas Releases Video of 86-Year-Old Hostage, Claims Heart Attack and Shelling Killed Him

“I don’t feel good.”

I’m not posting the video. I’m not posting pictures from the video.

The video shows Aryeh Zalmanovich, 86. He once said, “I don’t feel good.”

The end of the video makes one think Zalmanovich is dead.

Hamas claimed a heart attack and shelling killed Zalmanovich.

Nothing in the video has been confirmed.

From The Times of Israel:

The footage raises concerns regarding Zalmanovich’s well-being.

As is the case with previous clips of hostages broadcast by terror groups in recent weeks, Israeli media is not publishing the footage out of respect for the families of the abducted and not to lend a hand to the psychological warfare being employed by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Zalmanovich was taken hostage from Kibbutz Nir Oz on October 7 and has not been heard from since. Before being kidnapped, he managed to text one of his sons informing him that terrorists had infiltrated the Kibbutz.

He is one of the founding members of Nir Oz, bordering Gaza, working as a farmer there for decades.

He has two sons and five grandchildren.

As we used to say in computer engineering, “You touched it, you own it.”

I don’t believe a single thing these savages say–they’re just trying to come up with excuses for why they can’t return hostages in exchange for a cease fire

Tugging on heart strings after ripping them out of others. “It’s all Israel’s fault”.

“I don’t believe a single thing these savages say”…. horrifically, there are millions who do who aren’t even Muslim. They all missed Discernment. 101 and chose instead Remedial Idiocy.

Claims Heart Attack and Shelling Killed Him
Which, of course, likely wouldn’t have happened to him if Hamas had not kidnapped him. At least the shelling wouldn’t have. And he would have had access to decent medical care in the event of a heart attack. Because the Israelis don’t keep rockets and hostages under theirs.

Huh. Shelling killed someone taken hostage by terrorist Nazis. Sounds as legit as the baby dieing from lack of medical care because it was missing its head.

Been trying to find out if any Israeli website is tracking hostages.
Hamas has me so mad with atrocities I read almost daily.

It wouldn’t surprise me if he was tortured, and I imagine that a heart attack is a rather likely result of that for a man of his age.
