Police release dramatic footage showing the rescue of hostages Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov and Shlomi Ziv by forces of the elite Yamam unit and Shin Bet agents from central Gaza’s Nuseirat on Saturday.

The video shows Yamam officers storming the home of Hamas terrorist Abdallah Aljamal, who was holding the three Israeli men hostage.

The men identify themselves to the officers, and they are then taken out while under fire.

Amid the fighting at the home of Aljamal, Yamam officer Ch. Insp. Arnon Zmora was killed.
