Freed hostage Maya Regev to UN ambassadors: Hamas guard told me he would kill me if IDF tried to rescue me

Freed hostages Maya and Itai Regev met with a delegation of United Nations ambassadors to recount their experiences in Hamas captivity, Ynet reports.

Maya told the ambassadors that the terrorists had threatened to shoot her if the IDF attempted to rescue her.

“The terrorist who watched over me told me every day that if the IDF came to save me, he would shoot me immediately and wouldn’t die alone,” she is quoted by Ynet as saying,

The Regev siblings were both released during the weeklong truce between Israel and Hamas in late November, albeit several days apart.
