WATCH: Footage Emerges Of Israel Rescuing Hostages From Palestinian Terrorists

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) released video footage from their rescue operation that saved four hostages who were kidnapped eight months ago by Hamas.

Israeli special forces on the ground were supported by airstrikes as they raided two Hamas locations in central Gaza, rescuing three Israelis at one location and finding the fourth hostage at the second location. The hostages have been identified as Noa Argamani, 25; Almog Meir Jan, 21; Andrey Kozlov, 27; and Shlomi Ziv, 40. All four hostages are in good condition, according to the IDF.

The IDF released footage from both locations showing the hostages boarding Israeli helicopters and flying out of Gaza.

A video posted online by Faran Jeffery, Deputy Director at Islamic Theology to Counter Terrorism (ITCT) and Director General Operations and Head Consultant at Midstone Centre for International Affairs (MCIA), allegedly showed that Israeli special forces used a box truck for transport to at least one of the locations to evade detection.

Other videos showed some of the airstrikes near the locations that targeted Hamas terrorists and the moment that IDF commandos opened fire on the terrorists.

“They are back home in Israel. They are alive; they are well,” said IDF spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari. “They will undergo medical examination and will soon be reunited with their families in the hospital.”


The mission marks the most successful hostage rescue operation for the IDF since Hamas captured at least 250 people from Israel during its October 7 terrorist attack. In February, the IDF rescued two Israeli hostages — Fernando Marman, 61, and Louis Har, 71 — who were being held by Hamas in Rafah.

The rescue mission had been planned by the IDF for weeks, according to Hagari, who added that during the rescue operation, Israeli forces were under fire from Hamas while in the buildings and on their way out of Gaza with the hostages.

“They risked their lives to save the lives of our hostages. This is what we do in Israel,” he said.

Hagari added that the IDF will continue to fight to rescue the 120 hostages who still remain in Gaza, which include men, women, and children.

Hamas has murdered at least 60 hostages since its October 7 attack, according to Israel. Only 19 of the bodies have been brought back to Israel from Gaza.
