International News: Hamas posts video of 3 Israeli hostages pleading for release

Posted: Tuesday, December 19, 2023. 9:56 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Monday, Hamas released a video of 3 elderly Israeli hostages pleading for their release.

According to Reuters, one of the hostages spoke and said he was being held with other elderly hostages with chronic illnesses in harsh conditions.

Israeli authorities have since condemned the video calling it “a criminal terror video” that shows “Hamas’ cruelty towards innocent, very elderly civilians who are in need of medical care.”

Families of the hostages thanked the U.S. for standing with Israel but called for more pressure on Hamas.

 “I want to ask them to continue and be committed with us until my father and all others are released, and we know we need their pressure and we need the international community to say out loud that this is not OK, this is not OK that an 80-year-old man like my father is kept in tunnels in Gaza. We need the whole world to say it clearly,” a relative said.

Since Hamas unprecedented attack on Israel on October 7 and Israel’s declaration of war, thousands of people have been killed and thousands more displaced.
