Gideon Heiman, whose 84-year-old mother Ditza was released from Gaza yesterday, says she was kept in conditions so bad that not even a young person would necessarily survive.

“My mother did not receive any medical treatment during all these days. The conditions were bad, such that even a young person would not be certain to survive, neither physically nor mentally,” he tells Army Radio.

Ditza Heiman lived alone at Kibbutz Nir Oz and was in her home’s safe room by herself on the morning of October 7, when Hamas terrorists invaded during a widespread massacre that took the lives of 1,200 people in Israel.

She was released by the terrorists yesterday, and came home in a wheelchair.
