The deceased featured in the video appears to be Tamir Adar. However, this has not been confirmed.

According to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, an Israeli hostage held by the group since October 7th, 2023 has been killed after IDF airstrikes struck the compound where the hostage was being held. The hostage’s identity has not been released; this is a single source report from the group and has not been verified by the Israeli government or any third party organization.

The Brigades of the Martyr Abu Ali Mustafa is the armed wing of the Marxist-Leninist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in the Palestinian territories (the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem). Abu Jamal is the official spokesperson. The group refused to turn in its weapons and personnel to the Palestinian Authority after the 2007 agreements and Israeli withdrawal from Gaza. The group pledged to continue fighting until Israel withdraws from the West Bank. The group numbers in the thousands and receives direct military support from Iran through small arms, short-range rockets, and other military supplies. On October 7th, 2023, the group took part in the invasion of Israel.
