“The world must look at this cruel atrocity. Those who care about women’s rights must speak out. All those who believe in freedom must speak out, and do everything possible to bring all of the hostages home now,” President Isaac Herzog says in a statement, reacting to the release of footage showing the abduction of five female IDF soldiers by Hamas-led terrorists on October 7.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he is “shocked” by the video.

“We will continue to do everything to bring them home. The brutality of the Hamas terrorists only strengthens my determination to fight with all my might until Hamas is eliminated and to ensure that what we saw tonight will never happen again.”
