According to Israel’s military, the Hamas terrorist organization violated the ceasefire agreement. Taking to social media Tuesday, Israel released a statement which announced three explosive devices detonated near IDF positions in two different locations in northern Gaza, where the heaviest fighting has taken place, the IDF said, as reported by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“In one of the locations, terrorists also opened fire at the troops, who responded with fire. A number of soldiers were lightly injured during the incidents. IDF troops were located in positions as per the framework of the operational pause,” the statement continued.

 Israel and Hamas agreed to pause fighting for two more days beyond the initial ceasefire arrangement on Monday as Qatar was mediating for further hostage releases in exchange for Palestinians detained in Israel and humanitarian aid deliveries.

However, it was in the last hour of the agreement that Hamas terrorists fired at Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops abiding by the operational lines set by the ceasefire arrangement, the IDF claimed.

Hamas accused the IDF of firing the first shots to break the pause in fighting, the Times of Israel reported.

A spokesperson for Hamas’ military wing said fighters were responding to a “clear violation” of the ceasefire in northern Gaza but provided no further details, the Times reported.

Hamas is “committed to the truce as long as the enemy adheres to it, and we call on the mediators to pressure the occupation to adhere to all the terms of the truce on the ground and in the air,” the group said, according to the Times.

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.
