The Hamas terror group has published a video apparently showing 86-year-old Aryeh Zalmanovich, one of the hostages being held in Gaza.

The footage raises concerns regarding Zalmanovich’s well-being.

As is the case with previous clips of hostages broadcast by terror groups in recent weeks, Israeli media is not publishing the footage out of respect for the families of the abducted and not to lend a hand to the psychological warfare being employed by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Zalmanovich was taken hostage from Kibbutz Nir Oz on October 7 and has not been heard from since. Before being kidnapped, he managed to text one of his sons informing him that terrorists had infiltrated the Kibbutz.

He is one of the founding members of Nir Oz, bordering Gaza, working as a farmer there for decades.

He has two sons and five grandchildren.
