(Worthy Insights) – Hamas, the brutal terrorist group that massacred Israeli civilians on Oct. 7 and provoked a war with the Jewish state, over the last few days let some of its hostages go as part of a ceasefire deal. Released hostages have described hellish conditions and torture while they were in Hamas captivity.
“The hostages were beaten with sticks as they were abducted,” while “many of them had bleeding wounds” when Hamas finally released them, the Yeshiva World reported Tuesday.
Among those beaten was 12-year-old Israeli-French dual citizen Eitan Yahalomi, the Times of Israel reported. Yahalomi’s aunt told a French broadcaster that Hamas “monsters” and other Gazans “beat him” when the terrorists first took him to Gaza. Hamas then forced the boy to watch videos of its Oct. 7 massacre and threatened him and other children “with rifles to shut them up,” Yahalomi’s aunt said.
