IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says civilian hostage Sahar Baruch, 25, who was confirmed dead over the weekend, was murdered by Hamas in captivity in the Gaza Strip.

“IDF representatives updated the family of the murdered civilian, the late Sahar Baruch, who was abducted on October 7. Sahar was murdered by the Hamas terror group. We are still verifying and investigating the details of where he was murdered,” Hagari says.

Hamas had published a video showing Baruch’s body, while making unverified claims as to the cause of his death.
