Woman desperate for news on missing cousin, her two young children, spotted in Gaza

Yifat Zailer, 37, says she was horrified to see online video footage from Gaza showing her female cousin and the woman’s children, aged 9 months and 3 years, respectively.

“That’s the only confirmation we have,” she tells AFP, her voicing breaking with emotion, and adding there was no information on her cousin’s husband and her elderly parents.

“After the army took control of the kibbutz, they weren’t at home,” she says. “We assume they were kidnapped… We want to know what their condition is, we want them to return safe. They’re innocent civilians.”
