On December 9, the IDF confirmed the death of Sahar Baruch, 25, who was taken hostage to Gaza and killed there. This is the story of his capture:

Sahar Baruch, 25, was taken hostage by Hamas terrorists on October 7 as they attacked Kibbutz Be’eri, killing dozens and kidnapping residents.

The Ben-Gurion University engineering student was with his grandmother, Geula Bachar, as well as his brother, Idan Baruch, 20, a soldier in the IDF’s Education Corps.

Sahar ran back into his grandmother’s burning house to look for an inhaler for his brother.

Idan, Sahar’s brother, was fatally shot when he left the burning house, which he ran from because he was asthmatic and couldn’t breathe in the smoke.

Idan and his grandmother were both killed by the terrorists, while Sahar was taken hostage to Gaza, where he was murdered.
