Hamas militants tortured, mutilated Israeli parents and children before killing them, emergency responder says

An emergency responder in Israel claimed that he and his team recovered a number of mutilated bodies belonging to a single family that were killed during Hamas' brutal attacks against the Jewish state. But before they were killed, the terrorists apparently ate a meal the family had prepared for a Jewish holiday.

Yossi Landau, the head of Zaka, recently stated that Hamas had bound the family and tortured them before they were eventually killed. Zaka is Israel's emergency response organization that was responsible for addressing the horrific scene, per Business Insider.

Landau described the scene he came upon, suggesting that there was a father, mother, and two children, aged and six and seven years old. All four of them were on their knees, with their hands tied behind their backs.

He said "[t]he bodies were tortured" before going into detail about the situation he saw. Landau noted that this was not just a killing, but that the family was tortured before they were eventually killed. He also said that he believes family members would have been forced to watch the others being tortured right in front of them, saying, "Fingers being... Fingers being," he said, reportedly holding back tears, according to the report.

"All this happened, and by the end they all had a bullet," he said.

Hamas' attack against Israel was kicked off on October 7, when a number of terrorists launched a surprise attack on the Jewish state, as well as killing and abducting a number of attendees at an outdoor music festival.

"They ate this meal while torturing these children," Landau said.

Landau spoke with CNN about the brutal scene he witnessed at Kibbutz Be'eri — which was at the center of Hamas' attack against the Jewish state on October 7. During the attack, there were more than 100 men, women, and children killed.

However, Landau went on to describe how there was a teenage girl recovered who had been naked and bound and eventually beheaded. There were also at least 20 people who were burned alive, and then there was a pregnant mother who had been mutilated.

Business Insider reported that the immense task of identifying those who have died and the circumstances of the death have fallen to military forensic teams in Israel. The Jewish state has carried out an ongoing attack against Hamas following the gruesome attack earlier this month, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claiming that it is a war.

The attack Hamas carried out has been referred to as "Operation Al-Aqsa Flood" by the terrorist group's top leadership. During the attack, there were approximately 1,400 Israelis killed in total. It is also believed that Hamas took a total of 200 hostages to Gaza.

In response, Israel has carried out massive attacks against Palestinians, killing more than 3,000. They are also apparently planning a ground invasion of Gaza, but the details of the attack are still not clear.
