Father of murdered hostage Hanan Yablonka says he found out about son’s death via rumors online

Reuben Yablonka, the father of Hanan Yablonka, tells Channel 12 that he found out about his son’s death and the recovery of his body from Gaza before the IDF could inform him due to rumors circulating online.

“At 7 a.m., I woke up to all these messages… There were more than 300 messages,” he says.

Trying to verify if the rumors he was being asked about were true, Yablonsky says he phoned his daughter.

“She didn’t want to tell me, but they were saying in messages on Telegram that Hanan had been murdered,” he says.

“When the IDF phoned me at 8:30 and asked to come here, I realised that everything was true,” he adds.
