The Israel Securities Authority (ISA) released footage from an interrogation this week of a Hamas terrorist who massacred Israeli citizens during the October 7 attack in which he said they were ordered to kill as many people as possible, including children.

The interrogation of Hamas “Nukhba” terrorist Omar Abu Rusha comes after he was involved in the attack on Israeli civilians inside Kfar Aza.

“Our mission was to kill. We were not told to kidnap, only to kill. To kill anyone we saw, and then to return. Our mission was in the area of Kfar Aza.”

He said that it didn’t matter if the people Hamas encountered were men, women, or children, the orders they were given were to kill as many people as possible. He said that Hamas’ leaders told the terrorists that everyone that they encountered in Israel should be viewed as a “soldier.”

He said that he was assigned a kibbutz to attack and that when he broke into the village they set fires to the homes, gunned down innocent civilians, and committed other crimes.

“We went through the first house. We checked it and it was empty,” he said. “Hamza set fire to the room from the outside. Afterward someone came out from the backyard with a pipe — Abu Ahmad and Hamza saw him, they shot and killed him.”

“We went to the second house,” he continued. “We fired at the windows and broke the glass. We checked the house and found that it was empty. I lit the second room on fire.”

At a third home they encountered a woman so they shot and killed her.


He said that they later broke into another home and heard children crying from inside a safe room and so they opened fire on the safe room. He said that they fired at the room until the crying stopped because the people inside were dead.

“We entered the house next to us, we entered through the window,” he said. “We checked the house and heard the voices of young children inside the protected shelter. We shot at the shelter until we didn’t hear voices anymore.”

He said that he and another Hamas terrorist later surrendered to the IDF after a roughly 10-minute gun battle. He said that there was no difference between them and ISIS and that some of what he saw was even worse than ISIS.

He said that his family had no idea that he was in Hamas and that if they did his father would kill him for what he did to the innocent Israeli families.
