Police say 843 civilian victims from massacres identified

Israeli authorities have identified the remains of 843 civilians killed in the October 7 attacks on southern Israel, police say, with work ongoing to identify victims.

The number is nine more than an announcement on Monday.

In late October, police said 826 victims had been identified, with an estimated 150 victims remaining in 400 body bags at the Shura Camp, where a massive effort to identify the dead has been ongoing for a month.

Some of the remains at the camp are thought to belong to attackers.

Officials estimate around 1,000 civilians were killed in the Hamas massacres, along with around 400 members of security forces.

According to Channel 12 news Tuesday, 25 people remain unaccounted for — neither confirmed dead nor kidnapped — including 15 foreigners, thought to be mainly Thai farmhands.

The Bangkok Post reports that seven bodies of Thai victims are set to be flown to Thailand today.
