The Hamas terror group claims 13 hostages it is holding in the Gaza Strip were killed during the past day by Israeli airstrikes.

In a statement, the terror group says the 13 hostages include foreigners.

During its murderous onslaught on southern Israel last weekend, Palestinian terrorists are believed to have taken some 200 people to the Gaza Strip, where they are being held hostage.

The Israeli military says it has so far notified families of 97 Israelis taken hostage by the terror group that their loved ones are being held.
