As the global community marks World Children’s Day, Israel’s official X account posts the images of the babies and children held in Gaza by terrorists.
“Look at each and every one of their faces. These are the babies, toddlers and children being held hostage by Hamas terrorists in Gaza,” the statement reads.
“They should be with their families. Not in a dark room somewhere in Gaza. BRING THEM HOME!” the statement reads.
Some 40 children and babies are among the more than 240 hostages taken hostage to Gaza during Hamas’s shock October 7 invasion of southern Israeli communities, when 3,000 terrorists broke through the border and murdered some 1,200 people, a majority of them civilians, amid brutal atrocities.
In response, Israel vowed to eliminate the terror group in a military campaign that the Hamas-run health ministry says has killed 13,000 people in Gaza, including thousands of children. Those figures cannot be independently verified.
In addition to those kidnapped to Gaza, a hostage gave birth to a baby while held in the Strip.
