IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari in a press conference says the military and Foreign Ministry have notified the families of Thai national hostages Sonthaya Oakkharasr and Sudthisak Rinthalak, that they were killed during the October 7 onslaught and their bodies are held by Hamas in Gaza.

The two had worked in agriculture in the border community of Be’eri.

“On October 7, Hamas terrorists brutally murdered 39 Thai nationals, and kidnapped 31 Thai nationals to Gaza. Like them, other foreign nationals were abducted, including from Tanzania, Nepal, Mexico, the US, and France,” Hagari says.

“The terrible cruelty of Hamas was used against anyone that stood in its way, without distinction of their origin,” he says.
