The war between Israel and Hamas is not a simple two-sided fight. Hamas also murders its own Gazans and Palestinians, primarily by using them as hostages or human shields. The Israel Defense Forces say it has killed the Hamas commander that was reportedly responsible for taking 1,000 Gazans as human shields and holding them hostage in the Rantisi Hospital.

Part of the hostage situation was the individuals were unable to leave the hospital and head to Southern Gaza where humanitarian aid and humanitarian corridors are primarily.

“IDF aircraft just struck Ahmed Siam, responsible for holding approximately 1,000 Gazan residents and patients hostage at the Rantisi Hospital, and preventing their evacuation southward,” the Israeli military said Saturday on X, formerly Twitter.

“Siam was a commander in Hamas’ Naser Radwan Company, and is another example of Hamas using civilians in Gaza as human shields for terrorist purposes,” the IDF also said.

Just The News reports that Israel began telling people to evacuate north Gaza days after the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack in Israel that resulted in the deaths of around 1,400 people and the kidnappings of more than 240 others.

However, Hamas, a U.S. State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization, has reportedly been refusing to let people leave the area for the south. Meanwhile, the Hamas-run Health Ministry, which does not distinguish between civilian and terrorist casualties, said the death toll in the strip surpassed 10,000.

The four Israeli hostages rescued by Israeli security personnel on Saturday endured severe daily abuse during their captivity by Hamas terrorists, according to the physician overseeing their post-captivity treatment. Dr. Itai Pessach of the Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan provided these insights in an interview with CNN’s Paula Hancocks on Monday, as reported by Foreign Desk News.

The hostages, identified as Noa Argamani (26), Almog Meir Jan (21), Andrey Kozlov (27), and Shlomi Ziv (41), were abducted during the Supernova music festival amid the October 7 rampage in southern Israel. They spent eight harrowing months confined in Nuseirat.

Dr. Pessach described their experience as “a harsh, harsh experience, with a lot of abuse, almost every day.” Despite appearing in good condition on local media, he noted that the hostages suffered significant physical and psychological impacts from their ordeal.

Dr. Pessach highlighted several detrimental effects on the hostages’ health:
– Psychological Stress: Prolonged mental trauma from daily abuse.
– Physical Abuse: Regular physical mistreatment by their captors.
– Insufficient Diets: Malnutrition from inadequate food supplies.
– Medical Neglect: Lack of necessary medical care.
– Limited Personal Movement: Confinement with little freedom to move.
– Lack of Sunlight: Deprivation of natural light, affecting their physical and mental well-being.

These factors collectively “left a significant mark on their health,” according to Dr. Pessach.

Dr. Pessach has experience treating other hostages released during negotiated ceasefire agreements with Gaza-based jihadists. The harrowing accounts of the recently freed Israeli hostages emphasizes the brutal conditions imposed by their Hamas captors.
