The decade's most triggering comedy
The death toll from the Palestinian terrorist attack on Israel jumped again late on Tuesday night to more than 1,200.
Israeli officials released the information on Wednesday morning local time. Nearly 3,000 were injured from the unprecedented terrorist attacks.
U.S. officials confirmed earlier in the day that at least 14 Americans had been killed and that U.S. citizens were among those who were taken kidnapped by Hamas and taken back to Gaza where they are being held hostage.
Israel said that approximately 1,500 Hamas terrorists have been found dead inside Israel. Israel’s military said that it had struck 2,294 Hamas targets in round the clock airstrikes.
“It’s not a war, it’s not a battlefield. It’s a massacre. You see the babies, the mother, the father, in their bedrooms, in their protection rooms, and how the terrorists killed them,” said IDF Major General Itai Veruv. “It’s something we used to imagine from our grandmothers, grandfathers in pogroms in Europe and other places.”
Israeli military forces reportedly discovered at least 40 babies on Tuesday who were brutally murdered by terrorists in a kibbutz in southern Israel after the forces drove the terrorists out of the area.
Israeli-based i24 News correspondent Nicole Zedeck, reporting from Kfar Aza, said it was “hard to even explain exactly the mass casualties that happened right here.”
Zedeck said she saw “baby cribs thrown to the side” and “strollers left behind” after upwards of 70 terrorists stormed the community on Saturday, slaughtering entire families and taking numerous hostages. In a kibbutz, babies are typically all housed together in one nursery.
The terrorists reportedly set homes on fire to force people out of their safe rooms where they were then gunned down by the Islamic terrorists.
French journalist Margot Haddad confirmed reports of Hamas killing and beheading children and infants under two years old.
“That’s it, the information is out. It’s so macabre that no one wanted to reveal it until they had 100% confirmation. Infants and children under 2 years old were beheaded by Hamas in the Kibbutz of Kfar Aza. It is a horror, a massacre,” Haddad wrote. “For those asking for the source. [There] are multiple: Israeli army, internal intelligence service and atrocious images which reached me and which I was able to cross-check. But the best source remains this: courageous journalists from the foreign press who were able to see/agreed to see with their own eyes the bodies in Kfar Aza.”
