Bodies of three more Israeli hostages recovered from Gaza

Bodies of three more Israeli hostages recovered from Gaza

ISRAEL’s mission to destroy the remaining strongholds of Hamas in Rafah led to a heartbreaking discovery of bodies that belonged to Israeli hostages who were held captive and died following the unprecedented attack launched by Hamas on October 7.

The three hostages were identified as 30-year-old Oryon Hernandez Radoux, 42-year-old Hanan Yablonka, and 59-year-old Michel Nisenbaum.

“It is with a heavy heart that I share that last night…in the area of Gaza,” RAdm. Daniel Hagari IDF Spokesperson said.

“Our hearts go out to the families…We will not stop fighting for their freedom,” he added.

The 30-year-old victim was the boyfriend of 22-year-old German-Israeli tattoo artist Shani Louk whose twisted body paraded by Hamas at the back of a pickup truck became a symbol of the unimaginable horrors suffered by Jews at the hands of Hamas.

Israeli authorities believe all three have been killed during the October 7 attack.

They were all present at the Supernova music festival near Kibbutz Urim on the same day when Hamas infiltrated the event via motorized paragliders and killed indiscriminately.

Israel said its limited operations in Rafah aim to destroy remaining Hamas battalions in the city and to rescue Israeli hostages, with more than 120 of them remaining in captivity in the war-torn territory.

The news comes after the bodies of three Israeli hostages were recovered more than a week ago.
