Israel Releases Video of Hamas Gunman Killing Woman at Music Festival
Israel has released security camera footage from October 7th, showing Hamas gunmen crossing into Israel and chasing people at an outdoor music festival. The video captures the horrifying moment when one of the gunmen executes a woman at point-blank range.
The release of this video comes as Israel faces international criticism for its response to the Hamas rampage, which ultimately led to a devastating war in Gaza. Despite mounting calls for a ceasefire, Israel has made it clear that it will continue its campaign until Hamas is completely eradicated.
“This is a war between good and evil,” stated a social media post by an account linked to Israel’s Foreign Ministry, accompanying the video footage.
In the video, people can be seen fleeing from the Hamas gunmen as they try to escape the festival near the border. The situation quickly turns into a massacre, with innocent civilians desperately running for their lives.
Towards the end of the video, one of the women being chased squats on the ground, with a gunman standing next to her. Within moments, the gunman raises his rifle and fires at close range, causing the woman to fall to the ground. The video has no audio, but a cloud of dust rises as the trigger is pulled.
The identity of the woman has not been disclosed.
As pressure mounts for Israel to agree to a ceasefire in Gaza, the Hamas-run government claims that at least 13,300 people, including 5,600 children, have been killed. Israeli officials, on the other hand, emphasize the killing of approximately 1,200 people, mostly civilians, by Hamas, as well as the capture of 240 others, during the deadliest day in Israel’s history.
While Western governments and many citizens have expressed support and sympathy for Israel in response to the Hamas attacks, the Israeli response has also sparked anger.
