Fox News host Martha MacCallum and other select journalists were shown a 43-minute collection of video footage from Hamas terrorists, security cameras, and social media, taken during the attack in Israel on October 7. Some of the graphic video footage, shown by the IDF, has not been made public out of respect for the victims’ families.

News reports indicate that the footage shows the murder, torture, and maiming of innocent men, women, and children by Hamas.

“Today we were shown the Hamas bodycam and other videos of the attacks of October 7th,” MacCallum posted to X on Friday. “There are no words to explain. It is to witness the darkest evil that can exist.”

“Hamas terrorists laugh and call home to boast how many Jews they killed ‘with their hands,'” she described. “Asking if their parents are proud? Humans bloodied, charred, ripped apart.”

“But it is the cries of the children that I will hear forever,” MacCallum added. “I share this with you because the world needs to know what happened. And so that you can imagine it, because I hope you never have to see it.”

IDF Maj. Gen. Mickey Edelstein, commander of the operational planning team, said they felt it necessary to show journalists the footage so the world understands the “evil” Hamas brought to Israel, NBC News reported. Edelstein also emphasized that this footage also shows why Israel must do “whatever is needed to bring back the sense of security.”

“We know this content is difficult to watch, which is why we chose not to release it publicly,” acting Consul General Aviv Ezra explained the private showing. “But appallingly, we are already seeing people denying that these unspeakable atrocities even occurred. We believe it is important for leaders in the media world to know the truth – and that they have a responsibility to defend it. That is why we held this event.”

Last week, an Israeli morgue worker, who only wishes to go by her first name, Shari, due to security concerns, told the Daily Mail that she and her team have helped to identify some 800 bodies from the terror attack.


“What these barbarians did to these people is beyond words,” Shari said of Hamas. “Evidence of mass rape so brutal that they broke their victims’ pelvis – women, grandmothers, children.”

“People whose heads have been cut off,” she continued. “Women standing in their night dresses woken up and shot. Faces blasted off. Heads smashed and their brains spilled out.”

Shari added that she saw the bodies of “women and children burned to charcoal” and “bodies murdered with their hands tied behind their backs.”

“We have babies with their heads cut off,” she said. “Bodies without hands, without legs, without genitals.”
