Members of an Israel forensic team gave heart wrenching details of the unfathomable conditions they are identifying bodies in after the slaughter by Hamas. The team is attempting to identify the victims, so that families can have answers and if they at any time ever are “able and want to know what happened to their loved ones” they will have answers.
One woman spoke of the gruesome findings: “Women, from young to elderly, were raped. Entire families were murdered together. One burnt body turned out to be a mother and child burned together in an embrace.”
Another woman explained there were “Severe stages of abuse, gun shots, signs of pure torture” and that they cannot recognize victims by their face, only through DNA testing. The forensic team of doctors are assessing each body to figure out and understand the “killing mechanism” as to how each person died.
Among the hundreds of victims sent to the forensic center, several were dismembered bodies, many had limbs cut off and children were beheaded. Bodies were burnt to ashes.

U.S. House Votes to Permanently Freeze $6 Billion Iranian Funds Amid Hostage Exchange Controversy
The U.S. House of Representatives has approved legislation to permanently freeze $6 billion in Iranian funds that were initially slated for release by the Biden administration as part of a hostage exchange with Tehran earlier this year. The measure passed in a 307-119 vote, with the majority of Republicans supporting it, according to The Hill. Notably, Kentucky GOP Rep. Thomas Massie was the sole Republican dissenting voice, aligning with 118 Democrats.
The frozen funds, originally held in South Korea, were part of a deal where Seoul committed to paying Iran for oil before the U.S. imposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic in 2019. Subsequently, these funds were transferred to Qatar as part of the exchange. However, in the aftermath of an Oct. 7 Hamas raid on Israel, where more than 200 hostages were seized and around 1,200 civilians were killed, both Qatar and the U.S. agreed to refreeze the funds.
The decision to permanently freeze the funds reflects the growing controversy surrounding the hostage exchange and the broader implications of releasing substantial financial resources to Iran. Tehran’s support for Hamas and its proxies’ heightened hostilities in the Middle East have contributed to the contentious nature of this issue.
As the legislation progresses, it further underscores the complex dynamics in the region and the United States’ response to Iran’s involvement in activities that destabilize the Middle East. The vote outcome signals a bipartisan stance on this matter, with implications for U.S.-Iran relations and the ongoing challenges of navigating geopolitical complexities.
