257 Days - 120 Hostages
Bring Them Home

Four Rescued - And the Rest?

On Saturday we woke up to some good news. Four hostages were rescued from two locations in Gaza after weeks of careful planning. Tragically, a special forces officer was killed in the rescue. The hostages were held in apartment buildings where civilian families live, confirming what we all know about the complicity of a majority of Gazans in this war.

The Wall Street Journal reported the hostages suffered physical abuse for eight months. "According to the Journal, Almog Meir Jan, Shlomi Ziv, and Andrey Kozlov were held in a single dark room for six months and had no contact with the outside world except for their interactions with their captors. Punishments for failure to comply with their captors’ strict orders included being locked in the bathroom and being buried under blankets in the intense heat, the Journal said. The guards also abused the hostages psychologically, repeatedly threatening to kill them and telling them nobody would come for them or even cared about them." More from The Times of Israel in "Hostages' ordeal 'beyond anything you can imagine'"
