‘Israeli’ captives killed during Nuseirat air raids: Al-Qassam

The Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, says a number of Zionist captives have been killed during the Israeli military's air raids on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza.

Abu Obeida, spokesman for the brigades, said on Saturday that the Israeli regime had effectively put the lives of Israeli captives, held by Hamas since October 7, at risk when it launched the large-scale offensive on the area.  

“The first to be harmed by [the Israeli army] are its prisoners” Abu Obeida, said.

The Israeli forces carried out numerous airstrikes on refugee camps in central Gaza on Saturday, targeting innocent and defenseless Palestinian civilians, including children, Gaza government media office said.

At least 210 people were killed and more than 400 others injured during the onslaught, it said. 

Abu Obeida condemned the attacks in central Gaza as a “complex war crime.” 

“The enemy was able, by committing horrific massacres, to free some of his captives, but at the same time, it killed some of them during the operation,” he added.

A senior Hamas official earlier described the horrific attacks as a military failure.

Sami Abu Zuhri told Reuters news agency that “regaining four captives after nine months of fighting is a sign of failure not an achievement.”

Since the Israeli war machine launched its genocidal war in Gaza, nearly 37,000 Palestinians have been killed, including more than 16,000 children.
