The Bibas family says it has been informed of Hamas’s claim that three members of the family — mother Shiri and sons Ariel, 4, and Kfir, 10 months — taken hostage by the terror group were killed.

“We are waiting for the information to be confirmed and hopefully refuted by military officials,” the family says in a statement. “We thank the people of Israel for their warm support, but kindly request privacy during this difficult time.”
