Fox News reporter Trey Yingst was on camera just as a a rocket launched from Gaza exploded near a kindergarten building in Southern Israel. Yingst posted the video in which he says “It appears there has been a direct impact. This was not intercepted, it was a massive explosion.” There was a crowd of journalists just feet away. Yingst estimated that he was within 100 feet of the blast.

The kindergarten was unoccupied at the time of the attack, and no bystanders were wounded in the blast.

“We’re right along the Israel-Gaza border. This area has not been taking much fire recently, but we saw something coming off the Gaza Strip, sirens sounded. You have about 10 seconds to get to cover here,” Yingst said. “It’s by chance that no journalists were injured or killed. A rocket just landed feet away from where dozens of reporters are working tonight.”

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.
