Hamas says 3 hostages including 10-month-old child have died [View all]

Negotiators from at least five countries were working feverishly toward an extension of a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip while Hamas announced Wednesday that three Israeli hostages have died, including a 10-month-old child.


The Israeli military said it was investigating the veracity of a Hamas announcement Wednesday that three Israeli hostages have died "as a result of a former Zionist bombing on the Gaza Strip," apparently prior to the start of the cease-fire. Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, said in the Telegram post that Shiri Silverman Bibas, 32, her 4-year-old son Ariel and her 10-month-old son Kfir had died.

“The Hamas terror organization continues to act in a cruel and inhumane manner,” the Israeli military said in a statement. "The responsibility for the safety of all the abductees in the Gaza Strip lies fully with the terrorist organization Hamas."

The Bibas family released a statement to Israel's i24 news saying it was awaiting the report "to be confirmed or hopefully refuted soon by military officials."


If what Hamas said is true and not yet another cruel taunt, it is important to remember: these people died as a result of being taken hostage by Hamas, period.
