A top Israeli doctor treating hostages who have returned from the Gaza Strip says he’s heard testimonies that “are hard to bear” about their experiences in captivity.

Individuals have “undergone hardship, physically and mentally,” says Dr. Itai Pessach, Director of Safra Children’s Hospital at Sheba Medical Center, at a press conference.

“I feel the need to make their cry heard,” he says. “The world needs to know how evil and cruel the behavior of Hamas is.”

He says he is not sharing details due to patients’ privacy, and says it is for them to tell their stories to the public.
