Families of female Israeli hostages taken by Hamas release graphic video of their capture [View all]

A video showing the capture of seven female Israeli soldiers by Hamas on 7 October has been released by the Israeli government at the request of their families.

The graphic footage shows a chaotic scene as the bloodied women are forced to line up against a wall while Hamas fighters shout orders at them.

The fighters take photographs of the women as their hands are bound. One of the fighters shouts at the captured soldiers: “Our brothers died because of you.”

"I have friends in Palestine," one of the Israeli conscripts, 19-year-old Naama Levy, says in English.

One of the gunmen can be heard shouting back in Arabic: "You are dogs!” he says, according to Reuters.

Later they are pushed into the back of a truck while gunshots ring out around them, and presumably taken to Gaza.



I've never understood why calling someone a dog is considered an insult.
Dogs are one of the best creatures on the earth. The average dog is far superior to most humans.
