The uncle of brothers Yagil and Or Yaakov says Palestinian terrorists branded the boys using the exhaust pipe of a motorcycle after they were abducted to Gaza on October 7.
Yagil, 12, and Or, 16, were returned to Israel earlier this week.
“They told us stories about what they went through inside Gaza. The stories are horrible,” Yaniv Yaakov says during an event in North Macedonia with Foreign Minister Eli Cohen. “Each child that was taken by Hamas was taken on a motorbike and they took every child, took his leg and put it on the exhaust of that motorbike, so they have a burn so they will be marked if they run, if they escape, so [Hamas] can find them.”
“They were drugged, they were treated so bad, but at least they are with us,” Yaakov adds.
