Israeli troops operating in the Gaza Strip have recovered the body of Ofir Tzarfati, who was taken hostage by Hamas on October 7.

Tzarfati was declared captive after going missing at the Supernova rave near Re’im following the Hamas massacre there.

Yesterday, Tzarfati’s family was notified of his death.

In a joint IDF and Shin Bet operation, Tzarfati’s body was brought back to Israel this morning for burial. A date of death is not immediately given.
