Israel’s Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Thursday shared uncensored footage of Hamas atrocities from Saturday’s rampage during a video briefing to NATO defense ministers, according to his office.
“We have been hit hard. Yet make no mistake—2023 is not 1943. We are the same Jews, but we have different capabilities. The State of Israel is strong. We are united and powerful,” said Gallant.
“Hamas is the ISIS of Gaza, a savage organization, funded and supported by Iran. Hamas is ISIS. The ISIS of Gaza will not exist, on our borders. The IDF will destroy Hamas. And we will hunt down every last man with the blood of our children on his hands,” the minister told 31 of his colleagues, who were gathered for a meeting at NATO headquarters in Brussels.
“I walked from house to house. And saw the bodies of our pioneers, the Holocaust survivors, burned alive. Children were tied up and shot. Yes, I repeat—children tied up and shot,” he continued.
“Young girls were raped violently, and kidnapped or killed. They were dragged to Gaza, to the sound of cheering, while blood was dripping down their legs,” he said. “A peace music festival, with 3,000 young people, became a bloodbath. Dozens of citizens from your countries have been murdered or kidnapped.”
Images have been released by the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office showing babies who were burned alive by Hamas terrorists.
CNN will not even show the pictures because they are so horrific.
JNS has seen them and can confirm that the level of barbarity previously described is true.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in a statement that NATO condemned the terrorist attacks in the strongest possible terms, adding that “Israel does not stand alone.”
“Allies expressed solidarity with Israel, making clear that it has the right to defend itself with proportionality against these unjustifiable acts of terror. They called for Hamas to immediately release all hostages, and for the fullest possible protection of civilians. Allies also made clear that no nation or organization should seek to take advantage of the situation or to escalate it,” the statement read.
“A number of NATO Allies made clear that they are providing practical support to Israel as it continues to respond to the situation,” the statement concluded.
