Hamas Announces Death of Hostage

Hamas’ military wing, the Martyr Izz El-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, has announced the death of an Israeli hostage, reported to be 34 year old Yigev Bukhatab, claiming he died “due to a lack of medicine and food.”

Hamas released a statement regarding his death as well as a video on the matter, both of which can be seen below.

“We had previously warned that the enemy’s prisoners are suffering the same conditions that our people suffer from hunger and deprivation. They are suffering from a lack of food and medicine, and disease is now threatening the lives of a number of them.

We announce the death of the zionist prisoner “Yigev Bukhatab” (??? ??????), 34 years old, due to a lack of medicine and food.”

Approximately 130 Israeli hostages remain within Gaza, of which Israel believes above 30 have died over the course of the war.
