The IDF has presented its investigation into the death of hostage Yossi Sharabi in the Gaza Strip to his family.
According to the IDF’s probe, Sharabi was likely killed in a building that collapsed, close to another building that was targeted by the military.
Still, the IDF investigation finds that it cannot entirely rule out the possibility that Sharabi was murdered by his captors.
The building that was struck was hit according to the IDF’s protocols, the probe finds.
The probe says the IDF had intelligence information that an attack against troops was planned from the building.
The IDF still says it has drawn lessons from the incident and will implement them in future strikes.
In the same building where Sharabi was killed, two more hostages were held by Hamas, Itay Svirsky and Noa Argamani.
The IDF still assesses that Svirsky was later killed by Hamas terrorists in Gaza, and did not die in another strike as the terror group has claimed.
Argamani is believed by the IDF to be alive.
Sharabi’s and Svirsky’s bodies remain held in Gaza.
