    Sickening new video shows Hamas line up female Israeli soldiers on Oct. 7: ‘Here are the girls who can get pregnant’

    By Ronny Reyes, Reuven Fenton,


    Harrowing video released Wednesday shows the moment five female Israeli soldiers — covered in blood and surrounded by the bodies of their massacred comrades — were threatened with rape then taken away to Gaza by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7.

    Bodycam footage from the Hamas gunmen shows the moment the young women, operating at the Nahal Oz base outside the Gaza Strip, were handcuffed and pressed against a wall while still in pajamas.

    In the sickening video, the terrorists could be heard gloating and announcing their apparent plans to sexually assault the soldiers.

    “Here are the girls who can get pregnant,” one of the gunmen said.

    “You’re so beautiful.”

    The Hostages and Missing Families Forum, which released the video, said the harrowing tape shows the horrifying reality of the five hostages still in the clutches of the terror group in Gaza. They were identified as Liri Albag, Karina Ariev, Agam Berger, Daniella Gilboa and Naama Levy.

    Berger’s father, Shlomi, told The Post that he couldn’t imagine what it felt like for his 19-year-old daughter to face those threats while surrounded by dozens of armed men.

    “This is a wakeup call to the world: look what we’re dealing with,” Shlomi said. “You saw how many terrorists were in that video.

    “You only see three minutes but we know that they sat in the same place for two or three hours, and in front of their eyes they saw their friends that were murdered on the floor,” he added.

    “Maybe they told themselves, ‘I’m lucky, I’m just wounded.’ But I don’t know how someone can be in this situation and be okay in their mind.”

    Shlomi, who was first shown the video last month, said he could see just how afraid his daughter and her fellow soldiers were.

    “When they said, ‘You are pretty,’ and ‘I can get you pregnant,’ I don’t know what a young girl who is hearing this is thinking,” the father lamented.

    “It’s crazy as a father that my girl is in that situation and I can’t help her. I can’t do anything to help her.”

    Shlomi said he and the other parents backed the decision to release the video to the public to put pressure on Israel’s leadership to advance negotiations to secure the release of the hostages in Gaza.

    The women are among the roughly 100 hostages who have remained under Hamas captivity for more than seven months.

    “The video is a damning testament to the nation’s failure to bring home the hostages, who have been forsaken for 229 days,” the group said in a statement urging that the hostage exchange talks with Hamas resume.

    “The Israeli government must not waste even one more moment — it must return to the negotiating table today!”

    The video, which was shot inside the Nahal Oz base’s bomb shelter, shows the Palestinian terrorists in complete control by 9 a.m. Oct. 7.

    The gunmen could be seen inspecting the injured and bloodied women as they called them “dogs” and ordered them to pose for photos with their assailants.
    The terrorists threatened the women and said their “brothers” died because of them.

    Levy could be seen with blood smeared across her face as she pleaded with the gunmen and told them that she has friends in Gaza.

    Another one of the hostages was bleeding profusely from her mouth, with blood also staining her white pajama pants.

    All of the women were wearing pajamas , as the base was attacked in the early morning during the Sukkot holiday.

    Gilboa, 19, was seen wearing Snoopy pajama pants.

    During the heated confrontation, Albag was seen uriging the gunmen to find someone who could speak English with her.

    The terrorists, however, yell at them to be quiet and sit down, accusing the women of being behind the death of their comrades, who were presumably killed when Hamas overran the base.

    After the terrorists stopped for a moment to pray, they could be seen hauling the injured women into the back of a car amid a flurry of gunfire pounding in the background.

    Several of the women could be seen limping and having trouble getting to the vehicle, with some of the terrorists shouting at them to leave the bodies of their friends behind.

    The final moments of the video show the women packed in the back of the car as dozens of angry screams could be heard while the vehicle drove off.

    Albag’s mother, Shira, said it was hard to stomach the video, with families allowed to view an uncensored version before it was released to the public.

    “I can tell you that I am one of the only mothers who have seen the video,” Shira Albag told public broadcaster KAN. “Most of the mothers have not watched it. It is very difficult to watch.

    “This is a very edited video, very censored,” she added. “It is three minutes long and does not show everything that happened there in the entire two hours — but one can only imagine.”

    Gilboa’s mother, Orly, said she stood behind the decision to release the video to try to pressure lawmakers to renew negotiations to help release the more than 130 hostages who remain in Gaza.

    “The decision-makers have time to wait — they have other goals, so this led us to release the video to the public,” she told Ynet News. “I personally have not dared to [watch] all the footage — but the decision-makers need to see what the girls have been going through for 230 days.”

    “In my worst nightmares, in the biggest and most terrible Hollywood movie, I never thought I would see such a moment in my daughter’s eyes,” Orly said of the footage she did view.

    Levy’s mother, Dr. Ayelet Levy Shachar, was stunned by the video, and said that her daughter was a proponent of peace between Israelis and Palestinians and had participated in several demonstrations calling for peace.

    She was completing military service, which is compulsory for nearly all Israelis, when she was taken hostage.

    “At that moment, she probably couldn’t believe her situation and was trying to say whatever she could to explain to spare her life,” Levy Shachar told CNN .

    The heartbroken mother also fought back tears as she discussed the sexual violence being threatend by Hamas against her daughter.

    “I’m scared. I’m hurting for her, and I’m frustrated,” she said about the video and stalled cease-fire talks.

    “What we see in that video is what’s been going on for them since,” Levy Shachar added. “This cannot be a side story.”

    The mother added that several Israeli leaders refused to watch the video because they wanted “to sleep OK at night.”

    In total, Hamas kidnapped seven female soldiers from the Nahal Oz base on Oct. 7, including Ori Megidish, who was rescued on Oct. 30, the Times of Israel reports.

    The seventh kidnapping victim, Nao Marciano, 19, was confirmed dead earlier this month, allegedly killed by Hamas terrorists inside Gaza’s al-Shifa Hospital.

    The harrowing video of the women at Nahal Oz comes as Norway, Ireland and Spain announced a joint decision to recognize Palestine as a state despite backlash that such acknowledgement rewards Hamas for the brutal Oct. 7 attack.

    Speaking at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Wednesday, Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir said the European leaders were essentially “giving a prize to Nukhba [Hamas’s elite commando unit] murderers and abusers,” the Times of Israel reports.

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, however, claimed that the decision to recognize Palestine was in no way a show of support for Hamas terrorists or a condemnation of the Jewish state.

    “This recognition is not against the people of Israel and certainly not against the Jewish people,” he said in a statement. “It’s not in favor of Hamas. It’s in favor of co-existence.”

    Irish leader Simon Harris said he expects other countries to join the three nations, who will officially recognize Palestine next Tuesday.
