Scores of foreign citizens were killed, taken hostage or listed as missing after the Hamas terror group launched an unprecedented assault in southern Israel on October 7.

More than 1,400 people, mainly civilians, were killed by Hamas on Israeli soil on and since October 7, many of them executed, burned alive or mutilated.

The terrorists also took more than 220 people, Israelis, foreigners or dual nationals, hostage.

In Gaza, according to Hamas health ministry figures, more than 7,000 Palestinians, mainly civilians, have been killed in relentless Israeli bombardments since. Those numbers cannot be independently verified and include Palestinian terrorists killed by Israel as well as civilians killed by errant Palestinian rocket fire. Israel says it is seeking to destroy Hamas, while trying to minimize civilian casualties.

The death of more than 200 foreigners in the Hamas massacres, many of whom had dual nationality, has been confirmed by their respective countries, according to an AFP count.

Here is a breakdown of the deaths of foreigners in the Hamas onslaught in Israel, according to the latest available information.
