The families of five female Israeli soldiers being held captive by Hamas released a graphic video showing their abduction on October 7, 2023. The video, released by the Hostages and Missing Families Forum, depicts the horrific events that occurred at the Nahal Oz base near the Israel-Gaza border. Fifteen female observers were killed and seven were abducted, with only two of them surviving captivity. Five female soldiers – Liri Albag, Karina Ariev, Agam Berger, Daniela Gilboa, and Naama Levy – have been held captive for 229 days. The families are pleading for the Israeli government to take action and negotiate for the return of the hostages.

The footage shows the hostages being pressed against a wall with their hands bound, surrounded by Hamas fighters who are armed and shouting. The video captures the terrified expressions on the faces of the female captives as they interact with the terrorists. The hostages are eventually loaded into a vehicle amidst the sounds of gunfire. The video, which is 3 minutes and 10 seconds long, has been edited to exclude the most disturbing scenes of violence and brutality. The Hostages and Missing Families Forum described the treatment the girls endured as violent, humiliating, and traumatizing.

The families of the hostages are demanding immediate action from the Israeli government to secure the release of their loved ones. They believe that the nation has failed in bringing home the hostages and that there is no greater mission than reuniting them with their families. The families emphasize the need for both the living hostages to be rehabilitated and for the bodies of the deceased to be returned for burial in Israel. They are urging the government to return to the negotiating table without delay.

The video footage highlights the intense and harrowing experiences that the hostages endured on the day of their abduction. It shows the terrorists engaging in prayer before the hostages are taken away. The Hostages and Missing Families Forum condemned the brutal treatment the girls faced, with their eyes reflecting raw terror. The Israeli government has not provided any response to inquiries regarding the video, leaving the families of the hostages in a state of uncertainty and desperation.

The Nahal Oz base where the abduction took place witnessed a night of intense fighting as Israeli forces advanced deeper into Rafah. The families are hoping that this advancement will lead to a breakthrough in negotiations for the return of the hostages. The video serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, leaving families torn apart and desperate for the safe return of their loved ones. The hostages have been subjected to unimaginable trauma and fear, making it crucial for the government to prioritize their rescue and ensure their safe return.
