Footage surfaces months after kidnapping of 26-year-old by Hamas terrorists was one of the first videos from Oct. 7 massacres to be published

New footage published Friday by The Daily Mail showed the moment Israeli hostage Noa Argamani was abducted from the Supernova music festival during Hamas’s October 7 onslaught.

In the ten-second clip, Argamani can be heard wailing while being manhandled by a group of terrorists who have sandwiched her on a motorcycle, while one of them forcibly holds a black bag over her head.

The new clip of Argamani’s kidnapping came after she was seen in one of the first Hamas videos from the massacre of some 360 partygoers at the Supernova desert rave in October, seated on the back of a motorcycle behind her Hamas captor, screaming, “Don’t kill me!”

In that video, Argamani stretched her arms out toward her boyfriend, Avinatan Or, who was also taken hostage by Hamas terrorists.

Footage released by the terror group later the same day showed Argamani being held in Gaza, sipping from a cup of water.

There’s been little news since about Noa, 26, a second-year student at Ben Gurion University.

In mid-January, Hamas released a video of her in captivity. She appears gaunt and under duress, speaking about other hostages killed in airstrikes and frantically calling on Israel to bring her and others home.

Her mother Liora, who is battling stage-four brain cancer, on November 29 shared a painful video in which she pleaded to see her daughter before it is too late.

“I have cancer, brain cancer,” said Liora in the video message, sitting in the family’s temporary apartment in Tel Aviv, near her cancer treatment clinic. “I don’t know how much time I have left. I wish for the chance to see my Noa at home.”

“Noa,” her mother added, “I want to tell you if I don’t see you, please know we did everything we could to get you released fast. The whole world loves you.”

It is believed that 129 hostages abducted by Hamas on October 7 remain in Gaza — not all of them alive — after 105 civilians were released from Hamas captivity during a weeklong truce in late November, and four hostages were released prior to that. Three hostages have been rescued by troops alive, and the bodies of 12 hostages have also been recovered, including three mistakenly killed by the military.

The IDF has confirmed the deaths of 34 of those still held by Hamas, citing new intelligence and findings obtained by troops operating in Gaza, however, privately Israeli and US officials have said the number of dead may be much higher.

One more person has been listed as missing since October 7, and their fate is still unknown.

Hamas has also been holding the bodies of fallen IDF soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin since 2014, as well as two Israeli civilians, Avera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed, who are both thought to be alive after entering the Strip of their own accord in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
